in our skin
directed & animated by Rosa Beiroa


in our skin

In our skin is a film about the beauty of the female body. Through the freckles on the protagonist’s back the viewer is taken into a world of morphing figures. The simplicity of the line drawing brings us closer to almost abstract forms while describing shapes, volumes of the body and folds of the skin. The film highlights the exceptional and extraordinary that lies within the seemingly routine gestures of undressing and creates a connection with often overlooked feelings and sensations.
