Collected here are five of his most recent films.Chevelle is a document of a discarded vehicle’s ultimate crushing fate. Ten Five in the Grass is his take on a cowboy film. The Tombigbee Chronicles No. 2 is comprised of three short films exploring individuals from Everson’s parents’ hometown of Columbus, Mississippi: Rita Larson’s BoyEarly Riser, and Chicken.”
