The synopsis for “Junction,” this new film: “For generations the Face Changers have made the clay tokens that alter the winds and faces of their kin. This month the youngest is tasked to take the ten thousand footsteps to the top of the east mountain and engulf the town in the winds of change.”
The film is currently screening at festivals across the world. This weekend, it appeared at St Kilda Film Festival in Australia, and this month, also heads to events in Portland, Cardiff, and Berlin.
