“Skin” aims to create an open and informed discussion about imperfections, body image, and mental well-being. We want to name things with their real names, without shame, fear or discomfort. We believe that ignorance and silence lead to misunderstanding, isolation, unacceptance and distort the perception of normality.
“Skin” will present you a series of interviews with men and women on the connection they have with their bodies – the way they have treated their bodies over the years, how the connection with their bodies has changed.
And we’ll look at how our society treats female and male bodies and the expectations we impose on them. We will talk about the emotions that our bodies create, contain, store, provoke and suppress, and the silent craziness that all of us hide.
“Skin” looks for answers to questions such as: how do you feel in your own body?; what are the social norms and expectations that you internalise, which are part of who you are but actually work against you?; have you had a depressive or anxious period and how did you cope?; what is success and how do you keep the work/life balance and should you keep it at all?; what is happiness?; women and power – are these two compatible?; what does it cost you to be where you are at the moment?; when are you most vulnerable?; what is sex for you and how (if at all) has it changed for you with time?; why being in your body is the best place you can be?…
Skin is a freelance, self-funded project.
