Made in memory of Everson’s grandmother—who passed away one day before the August 2017 solar eclipse—this gorgeous silent meditation on the cosmic event captures a light dimmed but not totally extinguished.

 
Rams 23 Blue Bears 21

2017, 8 min

 

In one unbroken take, Everson documents fans filing out of a football game in North Carolina—a sly homage to/rethinking of the Lumiere brothers’ groundbreaking 1895 film Workers Leaving the Lumière Factory.

 
 
 
We Demand

Dirs. Everson & Claudrena N. Harold
2016, 10min

 

A formative moment in the life of black activist—and future US Representative—James R. Roebuck who, in 1970, pushed the University of Virginia to demilitarize its campus, institute affirmative action policies, and give employees the right to unionize.

 
 
How Can I Ever Be Late

Dirs. Everson & Claudrena N. Harold

This slinky-cool musical short imagines a moment of 1970s black joy as Sly and the Family Stone arrive at the Charlottesville airport.

 
 
 
Round Seven

2018, 19min

 

In seven chapters, boxer Art McKnight—alternately pugnacious, playful, and proud—recounts seven rounds in the ring with Sugar Ray Leonard in a 1978 prizefight.

 
 
Rhino

2017, 23min

 

This formally and intellectually adventurous blend of historical reenactment and documentary finds parallels between the last days of Alessandro de’ Medici—the 16th-century Duke of Florence and son of an African servant woman—and the experiences of modern-day refugees.

 
 
 
Polly Two

2017, 12min

 

A study in 99 percent totality filmed during the 2017 eclipse.
