Bradley J. Lincoln and Irene Delmonte, Kansas City based film directors and producers, will be hosting a screening of “Adira” for cast, crew and supporters of the independent film industry on Feb. 6. They say the event will showcase the growing independent film scene that is flourishing in Kansas City.
In addition to the Westport museum, the film uses various other Kansas City locations to tell the story at Adira, one of the 1.6 million Jewish children living in Europe at the start of WWII. Only 11 percent of those children survived.
“During the holocaust, Adira, a young Jewish girl, flees from the grasp of the Gestapo and finds herself stranded on an abandoned farm. She has to learn to survive with only her faith and basic instincts keeping her alive, as she awaits her rescue. See WWII chronicled through the eyes of a lost child,” the producers write.
It was shot in the summer of 2013, after a crowdfunding campaign, in collaboration with Have Guns Will Rent, Lucky Dog Vintage, Kansas City Costume Company and local World War II re-enactors.
The screening will be held at 7:30 p.m. on February 6th, at the Screenland Armour, 408 North Armour Rd, North Kansas City. Tickets are $10 per person and can be purchased online at www.hiddendistrict.net. Cast and crew will be in attendance.
