What do a psychotic viking pimp, a transsexual rapist, and a nerve-wracked heroin junky have in common? This brutal and over-the-top narrative is fresh off the sleazy streets of the French underground. Kinetic, beautiful and funny as hell.

MONSURA IS WAITING

A bizarro comedy about two aging showgirls in Bridgeport, CT whose nightly performance is a kinda sexy, kinda creepy worship ritual to a giant creature (think Mothra) they believe will be returning to earth to redeem them.

Italy, 63 min.
In the tradition of Pasolini’s THE CANTERBURY TALES and Borowczyk’s THE BEAST, this feature has Adam and Eve choose several new forbidden fruits, each a new weirdo erotic tale. Inflatable pool toys are abused en-mass, blow jobs are given in shooting ranges, lesbians throw random parties, Little Red Riding Hood even gets down with a mushroom in the forest and so much more- all drawn from the real-life images hidden in plain view on the walls of Italian architecture. It’s totally messed up but tasteful and picturesque all at the same time!
