Based on the book by Nalo Hopkinson.
“The skin hides the horrors in us all.”
In the tradition of The Twilight Zone movie, Creepshow and Tales from the Darkside, from the mind of award winning speculative fiction writer, Nalo Hopkinson and from the original vision of filmmaker, M. Asli Dukan, come three terrifying tales from folklore of the African diaspora.
In 2005, Hurricane Katrina brought death and destruction to New Orleans in the form of a ferocious hurricane. Also unleashed during this tragedy was a “revengeful spirit”, a woman abused and discarded to the sea eons earlier. She emerges from the murky waters of the Gulf Coast, soaking in a ruined white dress and veil. Her eyes are dark and cavernous. Her mouth shaped in the form of an eternal soundless scream. She passes through the streets of New Orleans, unseen by most, to bring us three cautionary tales of those who tread the waters of pride, obsession and greed. These are their stories…
Skin Folk, is a feature length anthology film, now in development.
