At 11:35, Artist & Filmmaker, Judith Levy joins us to discuss her new film, “NV in KC,” a community filmmaking project funded by an Andy Warhol Foundation Rocket Grant Award. The film is a humorous and probing and set in the vibrant art world of present-day Kansas City. Well-known, local performers and notable arts leaders star in this diary-like tale about artist Lee J. Ross’ efforts to come to terms with her own envious feeling and those of her friends. Invented narrative is blended with documentary-like interviews to tell a story that was filmed in Lawrence and Kansas City and captures the complexity of a challenging emotion. The film will have it’s premiere Thursday May 2, at the Tivoli Cinema in Kansas City, and on May 9, at the Lawrence Arts Center, in Lawrence, Kansas. More info at: nvinkc.com or judithglevy.com
