NSFW – First Trailer for Eduardo Casanova’s Pieles Is Pretty Peculiar in Pink


Just days after the news dropped that actor/director Eduardo Casanova‘s directorial debut, Pieles, would be screening at this year’s Berlin International Festival, the first trailer has dropped; and it’s just as beautifully bizarre and twisted as was to be expected.

Co-produced by Kiko Martínez’ Nadie es perfecto banner and Alex de la Iglesia and Carolina Bang’s Pokeepsie Films, both responsible for 2014/2015 festival fave Shrew’s Nest, Pieles (translation: Skins) has every intention of emphasizing just how much our physical appearance conditions the way we lead our lives. The film’s key players are all physically “different” in society’s eyes, forcing them to either live as recluses or join forces to contend with a world that only knows how to judge books by their covers and dole out insults to those who “dare” to differ.

Starring Carmen Machi, Ana María Polvorosa, Jon Kortajarena, Candela Peña, Macarena Gómez, Secun de la Rosa, Joaquín Climent, Carolina Bang, and Itziar Castro, Pieles will be screen at Berlinale as part of the Panorama strand this February. In the meanwhile, we’ll leave you with the aforementioned trailer together with a couple of Casanova’s most recent shorts, the first of which, Eat My Shit, tells the tale of Samantha (one of Pieles‘ key players) and how she battles with the daily ordeal of a “bottom side up” digestive system.

And a word of warning! The content below is absolutely NSFW so be VERY, VERY careful where you dare to watch it…
