In My Own Skin is a thought-provoking collection of meditations on issues of identity, race and gender as experienced by a group of five young Arab women living in New York City.

Filmed in the months following the tragic events of September 11th, this work provides a fascinating and much-needed look at some of the concerns overlooked by the mainstream media.
