Hixon transformed the field of portrait photography in Kansas City and the surrounding region during a career that spanned more than seven decades. His studios—the first in the Brady Building at 11th and Main Streets, and the second just one block west in the Baltimore Hotel—welcomed thousands of patrons throughout the 1910s and 1920s.

Filmmaker Kevin Willmott discusses and screens his satiric Destination: Planet Negro, a spoof of 1950s science fiction films in which a rocket ship from the 1930s enters a time warp, landing its crew of three in a modern Midwestern metropolis. There, they must contend with such unbelievable developments as a black president and young African American men who cannot keep their pants up.

Willmott is an associate professor of film at the University of Kansas. Among his feature films are Ninth Street, C.S.A.: The Confederate States of America, The Only Good Indian, and the upcoming Jayhawkers.
