Skinningrove

(Michael Almereyda, 2012, 15 min)

In this intimate and moving film, Almereyda probes photographer Chris Kilip’s memory of a small isolated fishing village in Northern England. Kilip made several trips to Skinningrove in the mid-1980s to take portraits of the town and its fishing community. He sits with Almereyda, showing his photographs (most unpublished) on his laptop. Kilip’s thoughtful reflection tells of a distant way of life and a photographer’s relation to his subjects.
