“A poem to the night.” Albert Serra

France 1774. Expelled from the puritanical court of Louis XVI, a group of aristocratic libertines pursue an ideal of enlightenment through the rejection of conventional morality.

How You Live Your Story
Selected works by Kevin Jerome Everson
USA, 2005 - 2020

Blu-ray 2-disc Special Edition

“Everson makes films that hover between close observation and abstraction, politics and poetry.” Elena Gorfinkel, Sight & Sound

The American artist Kevin Jerome Everson has created a remarkable body of moving image work that co-exists within film and art exhibition contexts. With a sense of place and history, his films focus on the lives, labour and leisure of working-class Black Americans and people of African descent. They suggest not only the relentlessness of everyday life but also reveal its inherent beauty.

This selection of four features and 17 short films, together with an 'image booklet' of photographs, has been specifically curated by the artist. Second Run are proud to present the first comprehensive collection to be released on Blu-ray of Everson's award-winning and critically acclaimed films.
