A Ship of Human Skin is a gothic story about mysticism and violent crime. Two women go into the fringe of rural culture to seek a revelation. They fall into a dark trap, and one must do something drastic in order to save her friend. By turns serious and surreal, this is a far-reaching film that concerns friendship, bad luck, and the feminine aspect of god. View the trailer.
