James River Film Festival

Leslie Cheek Theater

Kevin Jerome Everson, Associate Professor of Art at UVA, works in film, painting, sculpture, and photography. His “filmic fables” articulate the profound within the ordinariness of everyday life and 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 and other people of African descent. Professor Everson is a 2014 winner of the Herb Alpert Award in the Arts and has shown at Sundance Film Festival and at the Whitney Biennial.

James River Film Society is a volunteer-run nonprofit organization dedicated to the art of film and film as art. Find more events.
