    In this intimate and moving film, acclaimed filmmaker Michael Almereyda (Hamlet, William Eggleston in the Real World, Nadja) probes photographer Chris Kilip's memory of a small isolated fishing village, Skinningrove, in Northern England.

    Killip, a renowned photographer whose work has been exhibited around the world, made several trips to Skinningrove in the 1980s to take portraits of the town and its fishing community. These are striking black & white photographs of teenagers loafing about, children on the beach and fishermen at work in their boats.

    A brilliant, lucid work, Skinningrove affords Killip the opportunity to look back on his photographs nearly thirty years later. His thoughtful reflections describe a distant way of life and examine a photographer's relation to his subjects.
