1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 34 libraries worldwide
"What do we see in the films of Kevin Jerome Everston? We see what cinema rarely, if ever, show us. We see the ordinary gestures of America's Black population, the gestures of work and sport, of the taxi driver, the trucker, the policeman, of the amateur and the champion. We see men and women talking into the film maker's microphone or that of a TV station, going and coming with the rhythm of works and days, but also with a rhythm of images that originate as waves: flux and reflex, broad days and lights out, visibility and invisibility, etc."--Accompanying booklet
