In My Skin (De Van, 2002): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 8.40pm

This 35mm presentation is part of the French Extremity season at BFI Southbank. The full film schedule can be found via this link

BFI introduction:
After a car accident, a Parisian marketeer (de Van) becomes obsessed with self-harm; the dissociation of her character with herself manifesting as an inability to feel pain or pleasure. Marina de Van – who writes, directs and stars in the film – digs into the grossness of the body in excruciating close-ups, crafting a melancholic body-horror.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
