Macarena Gómez has participated in the premiere of ‘Skins’ in the Berlinale. The film, which is produced by Álex de la Iglesia, is the directorial debut of Eduardo Casanova. It’s a very law-breaking drama that will give too much to talk.
‘Skins’ in the Berlinale
The Berlin International Film Festival got dyed pink for the first projection of the film. A colour that dominates the picture as well as its promotion.
It’s the way that Eduardo Casanova chose to start his career as a film director in style. Not many people is able to premiere their first film in the famous Berlinale! Even less in the Panorama section, the second most important of the film festival.
Macarena Gómez, Álex de la Iglesia and other members of the cast like Carolina Bang and Ana Polvorosa went with the Director during the projection and promotion.
A film to accept oneself
The main reason this film is getting famous is its characters’ appearance. Deformed people who has trouble to fit in a society that criticises everything that is not ‘normal’.
One of the most flashy characters is Samantha, played by Ana Polvorosa. The actress who participated in Aída next to a young Casanova has her digestive system inverted. That is her anus in the face and the mouth between the buttocks.
This character, also played by Polvorosa, was also seen in the Skins seed, the Eat My shit short film.
Macarena Gómez plays Laura
Macarena Gómez plays Laura. A woman with no eyes. It’s the third time she works with Álex de la Iglesia, the second as him being the producer. The first one was in Bitching and Witching, directed by him. And the second was Shrew’s Nest, directed by Juanfer Andrés and Esteban Roel and produced by him.
