Join us for an exclusive, one night only showing of local, independent cinema. Those of Us Left Behind was produced in Kansas City by a team entirely comprised of local artists. The film is a bold reimagining of a classic Russian science fiction novel, Roadside Picnic, and it tells the story of three travelers who enter an alien Zone in search of a mysterious Room that will grant them their deepest desires. As the characters journey farther into the Zone, it becomes clear that the cost of reaching their destination might not be one they are willing to pay. Using an unconventional narrative structure full of twists and turns, Those of Us Left Behind explores the malleability of memory, the effects of trauma, and the process of grieving.
