Kevin Jerome Everson
Kevin Jerome EVERSON is an artist and maker of numerous short films and features about the lives and myths of the working-class black Americans. In 2006, Everson was voted one of the 25 most important new faces in independent cinema by Filmmaker Magazine. In 2012, he received the prestigious Alpert Award for Film and Video. Everson's work is shot in an experimental way, often on 16mm film. Everson mixes a documentary approach that often evokes the appearance of fiction. Documentary or fiction, the label is not very important, but the uncertainty indicates that his special work does not fit easily into any particular category.
