This is the second international screening of the film produced by Mohammadreza Mesbah.
‘The Skin’ that does not feature any well-known names and stars, is a dark fantasy folklore drama about love, magic and superstition.
It tells the story of Araz who lives at home with his mother, Marhamat, who is a witch.
When Araz finds out that she has bewitched him to stay with her, rather than pursue the woman he loves, he turns to the village elders for help.
