Review

To say the movie is eye opening is an understatement, the movie is at times jaw dropping. Second Skin serves as both a cautionary tale and a funny insightful look at a group of people all rolled into one. Watch it with your kids. It’s a fair an honest portrayal of a growing part of our population.

Interview

"The documentary is Escoriaza’s first feature film. He, along with a small crew, began working on the project in early 2006 and completed it just in time for its debut at the SXSW film festival in the spring of 2008. Since then, Second Skin has been shown at other festivals and will hit select theaters this spring, followed by a DVD release shortly thereafter..."

Review

#4 DOCUMENTARY OF 2008 "Probably my second-favorite documentary of SXSW… Second Skin is wildly entertaining, but also manages to be informative and worthy of contemplation of where our society (or a portion of it) is headed."
– Capone
