Iris Prize 2019

Skin

DIRECTOR: Audrey Rosenberg
WRITER: Audrey Rosenberg
USA, 22 mins

In small-town Massachusetts an isolated queer teenager struggles to navigate adolescence in a world that seems determined to push them out. Imprisoned in a body that feels wrong, Charlie hits puberty, a milestone which turns into a dark, surreal journey into an underground cave, where they’re presented with the opportunity to wear another skin and see life through a new, perhaps more fitting, pair of eyes.
