In Lucia's Skin

En la piel de Lucía

ALT | International Shorts

A day at the circus with her daughter, Camila, is a reminder to Lucia of her constant struggle with poverty and a traumatic past. In Lucia’s Skin delicately flips the conventional parent-child relationship—here it’s the young girl who exhibits sensitivity and awareness of her mother’s struggles, the source of which fuel the parent’s overprotective behaviour. Beautifully evocative, and carried by strong performances and wonderful cinematography that reveals their tight-knit bond, deep love and shared pain, the film doesn’t make any grand statement, but instead offers a quiet, powerful affirmation that reverberates through small gestures expressed in little moments and looks that paint a touching picture of compassion and hope.
