Here's what will be the highlight of the year for the Kansas City creative class. We'll have more on this as the premiere moves closer but for now here's a glimpse of drive-in hope for the late night . . .

SUMMER IN HINDSIGHT a collaborative feature-length film created by The West 18th Street Fashion Show & Film Society KC

The West 18th Street Fashion Show is now partnered with @filmsocietykc in 2020 to produce "Summer in Hindsight," a feature-length film platforming selected fashion designers through a narrative that explores the creative process during a global pandemic and a cultural revolution. Directed by Peregrine Honig and starring Calvin Arsenia as the lead, the film's "Directors Cut" will be aired at Boulevard Drive-In Theatre for a command performance on Friday, October 16, 2020. Previously the scheduled show was set to celebrate the twentieth production year via a 100-foot runway on Saturday, June 13.

"Pivoting from a live event to producing a feature-length film demonstrates our strength, creativity, and flexibility. With iconic Kansas City locations as our sets, international musicians will be scoring the soundtrack. The garments have been further developed due to our designers being quarantined with their work." She added, "Our innovative use of the Boulevard Drive-In as a venue ensures #Covid19 protocols are followed, protecting our audience." Creative Director, @PeregrineHonig.

@CalvinArsenia, star of "Summer in Hindsight," says about the project, "The creativity, life, and music that will be on display that night is something I'm truly excited to bring to Kansas City and the Boulevard Drive-In."

@justinpgardner, President of Film Society KC and Producer/Screenwriter for "Summer in Hindsight," describes the project: "With film crews unemployed and public spaces shut down by the pandemic, Kansas City talent has forged ahead. This production will help set the standard for creating movies safely during uncertain times by adhering to the recommendations put forth by Kansas City's industry-leading Film Office, thus protecting our designers, models, crew, and musicians. Film Society KC is proud to partner with West 18th Street Fashion Show for this truly unique opportunity, and having Calvin as the lead is a dream come true."
