Mondo Cult Film Variety Showcase #5: Endless Love

Mondo Cult Variety Film Showcase is a monthly screening of the best new underground, surreal, crazy, experimental, absurd, rule-breaking and outlaw films from around the world. It's the 21st century and the definitions of "art" and "cinema" no longer have to be inaccessible or pretentious; Mondo Cult Film Variety Showcase makes a statement that art has no rules, film is art and anyone with talent is deserving of being celebrated even if they fail to conform to the rules of mainstream cinema.

  • “Daddy Issues Trailer” (USA, 1 min. Dir. Amara Cash) The trailer for the new feature film about a 19-year-old and her estranged, neurotic father who unknowingly gets involved with the same woman.
