Sealskin is a magical realist short film inspired by feminist retellings of fairytales and Celtic folklore. Selkies were creatures that appeared as seals in the water but took a human form on land by taking off their sealskins. If a human stole their sealskin, they wouldn’t be able to go back to the water. Our film pivots around the moment when our heroine, Tara, finds a sealskin hidden amongst her father’s possessions, and must decide whether to use it herself to escape a fate she’s been thrown into, or to give back the gift that was taken from her mother.
There’s so much competition between women, especially those of different generations. Mothers are rarely seen to be more than their duty of nurturing their children, and adventurous young girls often need a knight in shining armour to help her reach her goals in the movies. We want to tell a story in which two women recognise their differences but also realise that they have both suffered from the same limits of their society and its expectations, to ultimately empower each other.
