In a materialistic world of artificial identities, a storyteller unleashes a mysterious God-like being who abducts alienated mortals and leads them through dance to shed their artificial masks and embrace each others’ common humanity.

Unskin is a provocative short film by Elcid Asaei. The project fuses contemporary dance with narrative film, in a mythology-inspired story that explores the dehumanising effect of a material world on social, race, and gender identity, in increasingly divisive times. The story will explore and deconstruct these stereotype facades through the medium of the moving image and dance.
