MORE ABOUT THE FILM: 
In Crystal Skin is a lyrical portrait of four individuals challenged by
Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), a rare disease that affects 1 in 50,000 people. 
This documentary reveals the untold  story of a tireless global network of 
individuals, parents and doctors battling to find a cure. It follows two sisters 
with EB who live in a crowded orphanage in Bogotá, Colombia. As their story
unfolds, the film explores the private lives of two other individuals battling EB: 
a ten-year-old girl as she is shepherded across the threshold of a complicated 
adolescence by her devoted mother and a middle-aged messenger searching
for a companion in a bustling city.
