“Rough and Unequal,” a film by Kevin Jerome Everson, will be the centerpiece for a symposium featuring the filmmaker in the Grunwald Gallery. The exhibit will open Aug. 6 and run until Oct. 4. There will also be a public conversation at 5 p.m. Sept. 7 in the Fine Arts Building FA015 followed by a reception from 6-8 p.m.
Shot from the McCormick Observatory at the University of Virginia, where Everson works, the film documents the waxing and waning of the moon.
“This installation expands the Black Film Center/Archive’s exploration of the reverberations between the genre of nonconformist filmmaking known as ‘the avant-garde’ and the parallel insurgent cinemas of the African Diaspora,” according to a press release for the exhibition. “The screening of 'Rough and Unequal' in an art gallery setting is consistent with previous screenings, providing a contemplative space for the 11-minute silent film.”
