Prichard is a small city near Mobile, Alabama. Filmmaker Kevin Jerome Everson traveled to the region in summer 2010 to document the oil spill clean up effort in Pensacola, Florida and, as part of a Creative Capital re-grant project, to shoot the feature Quality Control, about a dry cleaner facility in town. He had originally planned to film a short-form work in the downtown shopping area of Prichard, but when he arrived, the shopping area was no longer there. He turned his focus to a favorite subject, the automobile, and in particular, one man, Kenny Brown—and his struggle with personal velocity. Following his 16mm, black and white, single-take work as seen in the award winning feature Erie (2010), Everson trains his viewfinder on those concentrating on the task at hand.
