Film Screening and Talk: Skin For Skin: Art and Process
Saturday, July 29, 2-4:30 p.m.
The Rooms Theatre, St. John's
Join film directors, Carol Beecher and Kevin Kurynik for a behind-the-scenes account of the story and visual development of the award-winning animated short Skin for Skin.
Skin for Skin is a dark allegory of greed and spiritual reckoning during the early days of the Canadian fur trade. With nods to Melville and Coleridge, directors Carol Beecher and Kevin D.A. Kurytnik have created a visually stunning contemporary myth. In 1823, the Governor of the largest fur-trading company in the world travels across his Dominion, extracting ever-greater riches from the winter bounty of animal furs. In his brutal world of profit and loss, animals are slaughtered to the brink of extinction – until the balance of power shifts, and the forces of nature exact their own terrible price. Produced with the National Film Board of Canada North West Studio.
