‘Living Skin’ is a documentary that explores the lives of Shoushou and Mohammad Farag, two children who live and work in the tanneries in Egypt. Through their stories, we see the workers’ inhuman living conditions, surrounded by hazardous chemicals in a harmful environment, as they try to enjoy what remains of their childhood.
