Since the 1970s, artist and filmmaker Lis Rhodes has been making radical and experimental work that challenges hegemonic narratives and the power structures of language. An important figure at the London Film-Makers’ Co-operative, Rhodes was also a founding member of Circles, the first British distributor of film, video and performance by women artists.
Kevin Jerome Everson
Ohio-born, Virginia-based Kevin Jerome Everson is one of America’s most prolific and respected filmmakers. Over a span of twenty years and upward of 150 films, Everson has worked at a near tireless pace, portraying the lives and experiences of working-class African Americans through an impressionistic aesthetic palette that is equally informed by visual arts, street portraiture and observational cinema. Everson's films have been honored at film festivals around the world and featured in retrospectives at the Tate Modern and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among others.
