Rob and his friend Austyn apply to become human guinea pigs at the local medical testing facility of a vaguely intentioned multinational company called EvCorp. As the facility’s mere presence has bitterly polarized their town, the two apply in stealth. Austyn is accepted, ushered away and out of contact into EvCorp’s shadowy interior, leaving Rob to bear the burden of secrecy and the private concern that all may not be well with his friend. As he navigates both sides of the town’s deepening rift, guilt and denial do battle in his mind, evoking eerie visions, paranoia, and a strange physical malady. Produced entirely in Olympia during the summer of 2014, Slackjaw features many fine local spaces and faces.
