“A startling and memorable mood piece in shades of David Lynch, John Hughes, Gregg Araki, and Yorgos Lanthimos.” — Shaun Munro, Flickering Myth
About KNIVES AND SKIN:
What happened to Carolyn Harper? Part suburban nightmare, part neon-soaked teenage fever dream, this tantalizing mystery traces the wave of fear and distrust that spreads across a small Midwestern town in the wake of a high school girl’s mysterious disappearance. As the loneliness and darkness lurking beneath the veneer of everyday life gradually comes to light, a collective awakening seems to overcome the town’s teenage girls—gathering in force until it can no longer be contained. Unfolding in a hallucinatory haze of lushly surreal images, KNIVES AND SKIN is a one-of-a-kind, coming-of-age noir that haunts like a half-remembered dream. The film stars Marika Engelhardt, Grace Smith, Ireon Roach, Kayla Carter, Kate Arrington, Tony Fitzpatrick, Tim Hopper, Audrey Francis, Raven Whitley, and Ty Olwin.
The film had its World Premiere at the 2019 Berlin Film Festival, and screened at the 2019 editions of the Tribeca Film Festival, 2019 Fantasia Film Festival, Fantastic Fest, the Chicago International Film Festival, and the Deauville American Film Festival.
