This has been a long time coming. Thin Skin, the locally produced film directed by The Stranger's own Charles Mudede, co-written by former Stranger writer and Shrill producer Lindy West, and co-written by and starring Seattle musician Ahamefule Oluo is finally being released in Seattle, Los Angeles, and New York theaters. The story is loosely based on Ahamefule's episode of This American Life as well as a piece he wrote for The Stranger in 2011 and it's portrayed with stunning cinematography—if you follow Mudede on Instagram, you already know he has a knack for bending light to show surprising beauty in Seattle's dark, damp industrial corners. Do not miss this opportunity to see it on the big screen. Thin Skin opens at Ark Lodge on Thursday, with multiple screenings through Sunday, but Saturday's 7 pm show is the one to catch, as it will be followed by a Q&A session with two of the film's stars, Ijeoma Oluo, Ahamefule's IRL sister who plays herself, and Annette Toutonghi, who plays his mother. Unable to make it to the theater this week? Thin Skin will be available for streaming via Amazon and iTunes on November 28.
