Louisvillian Kimberly Levin based the plot of her film ‘Runoff’ on actual events she witnessed while working as a field biochemist in Kentucky, so her home state was in her mind’s eye as she wrote the script. The film focuses on a family crushed by the ecological and economic dilemmas of modern day farming. Levin, who also directs, shot the film in Oldham and Henry counties in autumn, and the film is as beautiful as it is intense and disturbing. ‘Runoff’ premieres Thursday at The Kentucky Science Center for a one-time screening at 6 p.m. and opens at Village 8 at 7:30 p.m. Friday with a Q&A with Levin and lead actor Neal Huff, with screenings at Village 8 through July 30.

July 23 – 30
