This Kansas City made one-hour documentary about people who cosplay is directed by Kansas City’s Nicholas Young, who also cosplays as Captain America. You can check out his instagram at https://www.instagram.com/kc_cap/.

Synopsis: Within the Kansas City cosplay community, a microcosm of society exhibits personal struggles and triumphs. Behind the masks, underneath the cowls, and beneath the makeup, these cosplayers seek to reconnect with family and friends, reckon with mental health concerns, express LGBTQ+ pride, and find the courage to overcome both external adversity and inner demons.
