"Cinnamon" [Jock Docs: Race Car Driving]
(Dir. Kevin Jerome Everson, 2006, 70 min)
Set in the world of African-American drag racing, Cinnamon (shot in 16mm and HD, color, sound) is Kevin Jerome Everson's experimental film about the consistent routine of a young bank teller (Erin) and a mechanic (John) as they prepare for a race. Cinnamon presents a glimpse into the world of African American drag racing. It is an experimental feature film about the consistent routine of a bank teller and a mechanic as they prepare for the sport of drag racing. Once the routine is disrupted, the result of the race comes into doubt. The bank teller is a driver who tries to stay focused before races. The mechanic's routine is to constantly examine the driver's behavior. He has to adjust the racecar to the driver's skill and ability. Also the mechanic adjusts the racecar for the weather conditions. The film portrays their relationship as similar to that of a composer and a musician, in which the mechanic is the composer and the driver interprets the music. Cinnamon hosts several different formal style as well as different materials. The techniques and styles employed will alternate between the conventionally scripted scenes and documentary footage. The scripted scenes have a naturalistic feel.
