Kevin Jerome Everson: Tonsler Park
SAW Video hosts another screening as part of The Common Cinema, an initiative that has seen its Knot Project Space operate as a small-scale community movie theatre, which hosted five consecutive evening screening with different partners from November 27th to December 1st.
Join us for a one-night-only presentation of renowned American filmmaker Kevin Jerome Everson’s observational documentary Tonsler Park (2017). The 80-minute black and white film takes place over the course of November 8th, 2016, Election Day in the U.S in Charlottesville, Virginia.
With an unflinching gaze, Everson fixes his camera upon a group of public officials, mainly African-American women, capturing them working at a polling station on the eve of the election’s outcome.
