Kevin Everson: Short Films2015. USA. 75 min.
Director: Kevin Everson
From internationally renowned filmmaker Kevin Everson comes a selection of short films that combines historical observations with contemporary, socially relevant narratives. This collection of films contains a broad scope of stories, from the University of Virginia–related We Demand, which features the first African-American Student Council president, to Auditioning for Nathaniel, which finds famous actor Nathaniel Taylor waxing poetic, and more. Everson’s films, richly abstracted and artfully constructed, are rare in their ability to find the extraordinary and theatrical in the ordinary and everyday. Discussion with Kevin Everson (U.Va.)
