SKIN PLEASURE will finally have its Latin American premiere at ULTRAcinema XII on October 14-19 / 2023 in Tijuana, Mexicali, and Ensenada (Mexico)

August 6, 2023


The motivation of the jury: "We were overwhelmed, discomfited and challenged by this uniquely honest work, whose radical openness allowed it to delve into territory rarely explored in any art form, let alone video essay. Though their material was often extreme, we never doubted the filmmakers’ sensitivity in handling a complex, contradictory subject."
