“Porcelain Presence” Directed by Emily Bibb & Chris Jay
A terrified wife who is brutally beaten and tormented at the hands of her psychotic husband is forced to accept his haunted past by bearing his infatuation for porcelain dolls. Things start to take a turn for the worst when some meddlesome neighbours discover that hidden beyond the doors of their seemingly perfect home lie some unsettling secrets that they wish had never been unearthed. The repercussions that await them after a gruesome crime, leaves all parties reeling in ways you could never imagine.
This is a self funded feature made by fellow Birmingham based filmmakers Chris Jay & Emily Bibb. Still in production, will be on the festival circuit soon.
