What's Showing In Art, Independent, Foreign and Documentary Film

If you’re not the least interested in baseball and this so-called “All-Star Game”, perhaps a great film might be more to your liking?

What better place to wait out the never-ending heat advisory than in a cool, dark theater? Or curled up on the couch in front of a blasting air conditioner?

With summer heat bearing down on KC, everyone could use a few good recommendations to away -- at least mentally -- for a little while. Friday onUp to Date, critics Cynthia Haines, Steve Walker, and Bob Butler review the latest art, independent, foreign, and documentary films showing on area screens, and recommend a few to watch on the big screen at home.

Our list:

Safety Not Guaranteed

Moonrise Kingdom

Your Sister's Sister

Seeking A Friend for the End of the World

The Intouchables

Up To Date
When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. Reach me at steve@kcur.org or on Twitter @stevekraske.
Stephen Steigman is director of Classical KC. You can email him at Stephen.Steigman@classicalkc.org.
