— — — — — Info:

Knot Project Space is excited to host another screening as part of The Common Cinema, an initiative that has seen the venue operate as a small-scale community movie theatre, which hosted five consecutive evening screening with different partners from November 27th to December 1st.

This additional sixth screening on Thursday, December 6th, will present the riveting observational documentary by renowned American filmmaker Kevin Jerome Everson, 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.
