THIN SKIN East Coast Premiere
Director: Charles Mudede
Country: US, Running Time: 91 min

THIN SKIN is a film adaptation of Oluo’s Off-Broadway hit musical play Now I’m Fine, about a harrowing period in the comedian and musician’s real life. A fever dream of recollections of Oluo ’s experiences escaping a go-nowhere office life dominated by a proselytizing boss, a broken marriage and a wacky mother, and all of it falling under the aching shadow of his missing father who one day took leave to Nigeria and never returned. And just as Oluo seems to be turning it all around, with his two young daughters in tow, he is struck by an illness that literally causes his skin to dissolve. It’s challenge enough to hold your family together and keep a grip on everything without literally having your body fall apart at the same time.

Welcome to Harlem Int’l Film Festival

Celebrating the art of cinema in the home of the Harlem Renaissance, The Harlem International Film Festival (Hi) inspires and entertains by honoring dynamic films by anyone about anything under the sun. Conceived from the belief that we all have unique experiences and perspectives to share, the Festival actively seeks and exhibits fresh work. Hi is committed to exemplifying the eminence that Harlem represents and is dedicated to bringing attention to the finest filmmakers from Harlem to Hong Kong.

The Hi experience integrates the best that Harlem has to offer – great restaurants, unique boutiques, world-class music venues, prestigious universities and cultural institutions, and a long history of excellence in the Arts. The Festival showcases features, documentaries, shorts, animation, youth projects, experimental/installation/VR/360, episodic work and cutting edge music video. Special events include Hi noon lunchtime screenings, the Screenplay Showdown competition reading, panel discussions, nightlife, the Hi Honors and the Renaissance Awards gala.

In addition to showcasing some of the finest films from around the world, the Festival also features the Harlem Spotlight focusing on films produced or directed by Harlem residents, films shot in Harlem, or films about Harlem and her legendary history as well as the HUB category for films produced in/about Harlem, Upper Manhattan and the Bronx.
