Kaveh and Raul are two b-movie co-writers who have suffered a bitter falling out. Kaveh's lost his girlfriend, and spends his days getting high in his apartment, while Raul is off studying at Columbia University. But when one of their films ("Islama-rama 2") is accepted by a film festival, the two ex-friends are forced to tentatively re-connect in order to pitch their script to the mysterious producer, Yukio Tai (James Hong). Along the way, they will have to brave brutish bodyguards, cutthroat colleagues, inept agents, romantic entanglements, prima donna actors, and the trials of their own bitter friendship.

JUNK is the second feature length film by native Seattleite, writer, director and actor Kevin Hamedani. His first, ZOMBIES OF MASS DESTRUCTION (ZMD) has become a critically acclaimed cult hit. He will be joined by co-writer & co-star Ramon Isao, and co-stars George Hardy (who last joined us at Scarecrow to commemorate his role in TROLL 2), Jannette Armond (who also starred in ZMD), and Basil Harris. JUNK, which won the Audience Award at the 2013 Austin Film Festival, also stars Brett Davern (MTV's Awkward), Lynn Shelton, Sean Nelson, Jake Johnson (The New Girl), James Hong (BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA) and features music by OK Go. 

Come on out to help us welcome the cast of JUNK, get a signed copy of the DVD, and chat about the world of indie-filmmaking in LA.  Beer and snacks will be available at VHSpresso.
