THE SKIN I’M IN Wins Aloha Accolade Award

Honolulu Film Awards

THE SKIN I’M IN is one of 8 international documentaries to garner a 2012 Aloha Acolade Award from the Honolulu Film Awards. Hawaii plays a significant role in the film, as it is the place where Fox came him his darkest hour to get sober in 2005. Fox’s parents, featured in the film, are Kailua residents, and their example of support and tolerance will prove an inspiration and source of comfort for any parent who is faced with coming to terms with a child’s alternative identity or addiction issues.

A great writeup from Occidental College on the award can be found here: http://www.oxy.edu/news/professor-receives-artistic-innovation-grant

“One of the challenges of making autobiographical work is that I’ve been laboring in isolation on this project for close to six years now,” Fox says. “Of course you have to believe in your work and believe what you’re trying to do is innovative in order to find the energy to continue pushing forward. But having The Skin I’m In be awarded a grant for artistic innovation by a selection committee comprised of other artists is a very special sort of affirmation.”
