Howard Allen’s film ‘The Skin’ comes to Dominica

first_img Tweet LocalNews Howard Allen’s film ‘The Skin’ comes to Dominica by: – May 4, 2012 Share 36 Views   no discussions Sharecenter_img Sharing is caring! The Dominica Film Office in Association with the Discover Dominica Authority and DOMFESTA will on May 11th present Howard Allen’s ‘The Skin’ at the Arawak House of Culture.The Skin, a film by HAMA Films from Antigua, comes to Dominica as part of Tourism Awareness Month and DOMFESTA. The fourth film by husband and wife team Howard and Mitzi Allen, The Skin is a supernatural thriller steeped in Caribbean folkloric mysticism made doubly eerie by its seemingly normal setting in a fine villa in modern Antigua.Plot-wise, the villa’s mortgage is the young couple’s – Lisa and Michael Fenton’s – primary concern as the bank moves to foreclose on them. Despite several efforts to raise money, they always fall short. Their luck changes when Michael discovers an ancient vase buried deep in the ruins of a former sugar estate and sells it to an expatriate antique dealer for enough money to clear their mortgage and have a shopping spree. The couple gets little time to celebrate their good fortune before strange things begin to happen and the thoroughly modern Fentons make the terrifying acquaintance with the Soucouyant.The Skin’s special effects are as sophisticated and otherworldly as the dialogue is simple and matter-of-fact. A triumph for a film produced for the extremely low budget of US$100,000.00. It is also a tribute to producer Mitzi Allen’s genius who ensured that every dollar earned by product placement, from rolls of Cottonelle in the bathroom to a whirlwind shopping spree and fashion show in Antiguan clothing stores, was stretched to gossamer thinness.The film has played to enthusiastic audiences at the Caribbean Tales Film Festival in Barbados, the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival, the Caribbean Tales Toronto Film Showcase, the International Black Film Festival of Nashville, Tennessee, as well as in New York and Antigua. It stars emerging Antiguan actors Aisha Ralph and Brent Simon; renowned Jamaican actors Carl Bradshaw and Peter Williams; Scottish actor Jeff Stewart and Antiguan dancer and choreographer Veron Stoute Humphreys who made a sensational acting debut as the Soucouyant.The Skin will be screened for one night only at the Arawak House of Culture on Friday May 11th 2012 at 8:00pm. Tickets are available for purchase at Bulls Eye Pharmacy and at Depex Color Lab. Press Release Sharelast_img read more
