Tonsler Park records a polling station in Charlottesville, Virginia during Election Day in the United States on November 8th, 2016.

* A masterpiece from Everson, the most important Black film artist working today. Conceived as a flicker film, according to the artist, the resulting work is actually a deceptive counter-polemic and one of the most significant political films made in the US in this early 21st century. [GD]
