Cat Skin is a coming of age drama by writer and director Daniel Grasskamp. 17 year old Cat is a shy and troubled photography student at college in a small coastal town. Her life is illuminated when her voyeuristic nature behind the camera lens sparks a chance encounter with a beautiful music student called April. Their relationship blossoms while circumstances threaten to keep them apart. April’s mother Sally struggles to come to terms with her daughter’s involvement with Cat, whilst April’s former lover, Steven, is unable to deal with rejection. Spiralling tension will lead to tragic events that will impact the lives of both Cat and April.
