Utah’s film tradition runs deep, but too often great films from our region miss popular release on the big screen. That’s where the Under the Radar Film Series comes in! This is your chance to see a broad array of cinematic delights that you may have missed and interact with the Utahns who helped make the movie come together.
Must Come Down was written and directed by local filmmaker Kenny Riches, and filmed in Salt Lake City. The film chronicles two twenty-somethings, Holly and Ashley, both in the midst of individual quarter-life crises, who meet by chance when their peculiar activities intersect at the same bus stop. Ashley, in his late twenties, quit his job to travel in search of internal clarity—stopping along the way to visit his childhood home with an ulterior motive to break in for nostalgic rush. Holly, in her early twenties, is mourning the loss of an immature and short-lived relationship with her restaurant manager who ultimately fired her, leaving her jobless and directionless as well as heart broke. Both struggling to move on from the past, Holly and Ashley share brief, strange, and juvenile misadventures as they compare and contrast, and commiserate as grown-up children stumbling through life's final bout of growing pains.
Following the film, there will be a Q&A with Director Kenny Riches, Editor Tj Nelson, Composer Andrew Shaw, and Betsy Ross of The David Ross Fetzer Foundation for Emerging Artists.
