Nine Inch Nails promoted its 2007 album, Year Zero, with an alternate-reality game, in which the Art Is Resistance movement combated oppressors such as the Bureau of Morality and the evil pharmaceutical conglomerate Cedocore. Players accessed the in-game forum “Another Version of the Truth” by visiting the eponymous Web site and clicking on a peaceful image of a farm, which morphed into a Crazies-style rural wasteland. Fortunately, attending the screening of Another Version of the Truth: The Gift carries no dystopian repercussions. Edited and produced entirely by fans, The Gift splices together the strongest performances from three NIN concerts and presents them as a single full-length feature. The high-definition screening takes place at 8:45 p.m. at Starlight Theatre (4600 Starlight Road, 816-363-7827), indoors on the Jeannette and Jerome Cohen Community Stage.
