My Skin, Luminous

Mi piel, luminosa

Matías, an ailing orphan boy who has lost pigmentation in his skin, is quarantined by his classmates at a rural primary school in the state of Michoacán, Mexico. The soothing words and presence of famous writer Marco Bellatin (who appears in the film) offers a healing prospect to this tormented youth. A shape-shifting docufiction that beguilingly drifts into the realm of the oneiric. Enigmatic and deceptively playful in tone, it boldly transforms the mundane into fantasy, acting as a mystic meditation on the double-edged nature and childhood and navigating us through the notions of cleansing and rebirth.
