Skin Deep

Skin Deep [1998]

85 minutes | Format: DV / Betacam

Language: Multilingual



Skin Deep is an exploration of body images and self identity among contemporary urban middle class women in India.... a feeling of being too dark, too fat, too old... that everyone experiences and attempts to come to terms with. The film attempts to trace the dynamics of the eternal search for the ideal feminity and how it permeates the self image of women.


Shot in the form of docu-feature, six first person narratives comprise the basic structure of the film.
