Spanish premiere

Two men draping a tattered billboard with a hip new ad. A young girl silently focusing on a candle. Two men sword-fighting. A group of workers discussing the past and present of local industry. Singers and dancers in their practice sessions. Immigrants and forms of immigration. Gestures, tasks, and living conditions in 16mm black-and-white shots. An oblique realism to tell the experiences of working-class African-Americans in the US, from south to north. Work and leisure. Gestures, routines, and special moments. This film is a reflection on the ways of living of African-American communities near lake Erie.

Kevin Jerome Everson

Everson was born in Mansfield, Ohio. He has a MFA from Ohio University and a BFA from the University of Akron. With a sense of place and historical research, Kevin Jerome Everson films combine scripted and documentary moments with rich elements of formalism. The subject matter is the gestures or tasks caused by certain conditions in the lives of working class African Americans. He is currently an Associate Professor of Art at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville. Everson has received fellowships from the Guggenheim and the Virginia Museum, and his films have screened in Sundance, Rotterdam and Toronto festivals, among others.
