The traveling show of "bizarre and provocative" shorts that is this year's 10th Annual Druid Underground Film Festival will screen at The Painted Lady In Hamtramck on Sunday.

Founder Billy Burgess sifts through hundreds of submissions to assemble the line up of 28 films that fit with the one-of-a-kind show. As he puts it: "Druid Underground champions subversive techniques that advance the language of cinema, challenge pre-conceived notions of underground art and simultaneously blow your mind out of your skull!"

See what that's like at 8 p.m. at the Painted Lady, and find a taste of it in the trailer below.
