Former Twin Falls resident and director Jake Schumacher is returning to Twin Falls for the hometown premiere of his documentary film, App: The Human Story.

This feature length documentary gives a voice to the passionate community of indie app developers.

With the launch of the iPhone and subsequent devices, developers found themselves with a worldwide market hungry for their innovations: apps.

Yet, a renaissance needs cultivation, not exploitation. Ten years in, is the opportunity gone? Will artists find a way to create tools that elevate the human experience, or will the market be valued even above the impact to the future of the industry? - Jake Schumacher

The concept for the film was conceived in Twin Falls in 2012 while the original directors both resided there.
