Filipino Folk Horror Film "IN MY MOTHER'S SKIN" Streaming on Prime Video Starting October 12, 2023

Starring Beauty Gonzalez, Felicity Kyle Napuli, Jasmine Curtis-Smith, James Mavie Estrella, and Angeli Bayani, the film is written and directed by Kenneth Dagatan. "In My Mother's Skin" was part of the Sundance Film Festival's Midnight Section and now the global video streaming service Prime Video announced this week that the film will launch on October 12, 2023 on Prime Video in the Philippines and in over 240 countries and territories.

"In My Mother’s Skin", a Filipino horror fairytale, was the only non-English language film which had its world premiere in the 2023 Sundance Film Festival’s Midnight Section. Set in World War II, the film deals with the agonizing conflict of a young girl’s duty to protect her dying mother and her misplaced trust in a beguiling, flesh-eating fairy. Tala, a 14-year-old daughter of a textile merchant who lives in a war-worn colonial house with her sickly mother Ligaya and younger brother Bayani. When Tala’s father mysteriously leaves once more to barter for his family's freedom with the Japanese, his family finds themselves alone in their isolated forest mansion. With Ligaya’s condition rapidly deteriorating, Tala seeks out a mysterious fairy who has promised to protect her and gives Tala a magical insect to cure her dying mother. This initially provides Ligaya with relief, but later leads to disastrous consequences that force Tala to make a distressing decision.

The film has traveled to over ten film festivals all over the world including BiFan (Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival, South Korea), Fantasia (Canada), Neuchatel (Switzerland), Karlovy Vary (Czech Republic) and Miffest (Malaysia).
