BEST LOCAL DOCUMENTARY 

Civil War on Wheels

Critics' Choice

Back in 2004, local garage monkey Patrick Sumner filmed about 12 hours of footage at demolition derbies in eastern Kansas and western Missouri. Today, due to a lack of older cars, that subculture's popularity is waning. Sumner pieced together the footage with the help of producer Chris Snipes and dropped Civil War on Wheels on us in April. The 57-minute retrospective documents the Border War nature of the crashing cars at county fairs. Set to a muddy, chugging soundtrack of some of KC's most beloved bands — Sin City Disciples, Split Lip Rayfield and Snuff Jazz — the film took us back to a time when summer pleasures were as simple as corn dogs, cold PBR and hot women in tube tops. The doc also answered a lot of questions that we had about the beginnings of the Crossroads Arts District. The only things missing? The smell of gas and mud splatters.
