Dawai creates the “JUG FACE” in new clip
The small backwoods community in Chad Crawford Kinkle’s JUG FACE has a neat little mythology going. Utilizing an art tradition that dates far, far back, the village potter is annually possessed to create a face jug that resembles one of his neighbors. That person is ultimately sacrificed. Now On Demand, a small excerpt from the film is available and should get pottery enthusiasts going.
JUG FACE is the story of a pregnant teen trying to escape a backwoods community when she discovers that she may be sacrificed to a mysterious pit. The entity in the pit requires a life for keeping the community safe. The face of the person to be sacrificed is crafted onto a ceramic jug. When ignored, the entity unleashes an evil onto the community. Now no one is safe as tragedy befalls each member one by one and they soon realize that the pit wants what it wants.
