Made in America: The Cinema of Kevin Jerome Everson


Set in the world of African-American drag racing in Virginia, Cinnamon follows Erin (actress Erin Stewart), a young bank teller, and John, a mechanic, as they prepare for a race. As a driver, her routine is to stay focused before races, while his is to constantly examine the driver’s behavior.

Our take

In his debut film, a multi-faceted exploration of drag racing in the Midwest, Kevin Jerome Everson fully encompasses the community, ecstasy, and expertise of this unusual sport. Gently drifting between fiction and reality, Cinnamon is an eloquent expression of black unity and excellence.
