This session will take place on Collaborate. here is the link to the session:


A prolific filmmaker, Kevin Jerome Everson has amassed a large body of work over the last decade. Within his oeuvre Everson has regularly returned to questions of labour, particularly the legacy of America’s closed factories and the effects of these changes on the communities who had relied on the automobile industry. In approaching these themes of labour, Everson’s films fluctuate from visual languages of abstraction to the materiality of the filmed object itself, drawing comparisons between the tactility of the skilled manual labours of the factory, and the filmmaker’s own tools. 

In addition to this talk, we will be showing programme of short films by Kevin Jerome Everson , these can be viewed anytime between 25 March and 3 April via the Essay Film Festival website:
