Emergency selection

Kevin Jerome Emerson's short film Emergency Needs, commissioned by IFFR for the 2007 festival to commemorate the work of Gus van Sant, has been selected for the prestigious 2008 Whitney Biennial in March. Emerson seemed encouraged yesterday by the response to his latest film, The Golden Age of Fish, screening in Time and Tide. 'They're good crowds, and I've had some great Q&As. I know the film can be slightly difficult at times, but I think people are patient and ask some really good questions about my approach as an artist and a filmmaker to the subject matter.' NC
