Skin of Glass

24 March 2024 at 2:00 pm

Dave Barber Cinematheque, 100 Arthur Street


Directed by Denise Zmekhol
2023, USA, 90 minutes, Portuguese/English/French (with English subtitles)

A poetic and personal cinematic meditation on displacement, inequality and loss, Skin of Glass follows my journey upon discovering that my late father’s most celebrated work as an architect, a modernist glass skyscraper in the heart of São Paulo, has become occupied by hundreds of homeless families.

Sponsored by Crosier Kilgour.
