The cast is headed by Ray Stevenson ("Divergent"), David Oakes ("The Borgia") and Aura Garrido ("Stockholm", "The Time Ministry"), who each spent over eight hours daily in the makeup chair, in one of the most spectacular characterization exercises in Spanish cinema. “Cold Skin” will be released across Spain on 20 October 2017 (Distributor: Diamond Films España).
COLD SKIN SYNOPSIS
On an island lost in the middle of the ocean, two men defend themselves night after night from the siege of strange sea creatures. Under extreme tension, without understanding the reasons for the attack, they will have to rethink how to confront the unknown. The captivity and the incessant struggle for life drag them to a journey to the center of their entrails, where lucidity and alienation, rejection and desire, cruelty and love intermingle, towards the unknown.
Brighter, sharper, with more depth of field, more density and more detail, the images produced by EclairColor HDR technology have more contrast and greater fidelity, better reflecting the colour originally intended by the creative teams. EclairColor adapts to all cinemas, from arthouses to the largest multiplexes. A recent audience survey led by French independent organisation L’Observatoire de la Satisfaction has revealed that the level of satisfaction among moviegoers after watching a movie in EclairColor is as high as 96.7%. Audience members spontaneously mentioned the beauty of the images, stating they are of superior quality, more colourful and brighter in comparison with a standard image. More importantly, according to the study, the projection in EclairColor has significantly increased the level of appreciation of the film.
