Pieles is an amazing film. It ‘tells the story of misshapen people who force themselves to hide, stay under the radar or conect between them’. The characters are fighting to find their own place in a society which makes outcasts of people who are different.
Amongst the characters are Samantha (Ana Polvorosa), who has her digestive system upside down, Laura (Macarena Gómez), a woman born without eyes, and Ana (Candela Peña), a woman whose face is distorted by an enormous tumour.
Lola Gómez was the key makeup artist.
Óscar del Monte was the special makeup designer; Cristina Malillos was the special makeup effects artist.
