Skin Deep (United States | 2016, 5 min)

Directed by: Lulu Jiang

Skin Deep by Lulu Jiang is a film that fuses live action and illustration to explore a layered romance about tattoos and their power to psychologically seduce. Using multiple viewpoints and stories nested within one another, hand-drawn tattoo flash is digitized and composited to create a gritty tone from exotically inked images. The film’s juxtaposition of reality and fantasy takes the viewer on a journey that twists and turns to disguise a jaw-dropping ending.
