Skin Trade is a 2010 documentary film directed by Shannon Keith, presented by Uncaged Films and ARME. The film features Duran Duran's "Skin Trade" as the title track.

About the film[]

The film is a documentary lambasting the fur industry and those who condone its practices. Directed by Shannon Keith, an animal rights attorney and founder of the nonprofit organization Animal Rescue, Media & Education (ARME). The documentary strives to answer the question of why fur is still a part of modern fashion, despite the well-documented cruelties of fur farming.

Included is graphic, disturbing footage of animals being tortured between interviews with a number of notable anti-fur activists, such as Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich (D-Ohio), environmental attorney Jan Schlichtmann, designer Todd Oldham, PETA President Ingrid Newkirk, Overstock.com chief executive Patrick Byrne (who chooses not to sell fur on his website) and actor-activists including Alexandra Paul, James Cromwell and Jorja Fox.

The film's website skintrademovie.com states that Duran Duran were happy to have ARME and Uncaged Films use their song as the title track for their anti-fur documentary of the same name.
