When laissez-faire employee Kevvo maxes out the store credit card ordering hundreds of Western Troma films, a group of well-intentioned but hopelessly flawed film clerks are plunged into a tailspin as they struggle to save their beloved video store from extinction.
From the director:
"This is a story about moving on. Set in a place stuck in the past, where nothing works anymore.
It's also a celebration of physical media culture, and a comedy - that at its core - is about nostalgia and loss.
I've worked for Ken's World of Video (formerly the largest video collection in the midwest), Facets Multi-Media, Cinema/Chicago, Odd Obsession, curated rare film at MCA Chicago, and more. Grew up with artist / musician parents with floor-to-ceiling video stacks, and spent my time exchanging videotapes with my friends.
I was the only (or one of very few) women present in all of these spaces. "Endless Video" is a satire featuring all male characters - satirizing male-dominated spaces from a female perspective. The dynamic of these spaces were always distinctly flawed due to a lack of diversity. Without the benefit of varied perspectives to boost growth and problem solving, their progress was always noticeably hampered."
