Description:
  A small supermarket in a blue-collar town, a black man smiles at a 10-year-old white boy across the checkout aisle. This innocuous moment sends two gangs into a ruthless war that ends with a shocking backlash.

Skin is based on the true story of Bryon Widner, a notorious white supremacist who goes through extensive surgeries to remove Neo-Nazi tattoos on his face and hands in order to reform.

Skin was short-listed for the Academy Awards in 2019.

- Winner of the 2019 Academy Award [Oscar] for the Best Short Film.

About Bryon Widner

Bryon Widner was born into hate. The son of a neo-Nazi leader, he was raised with white-supremacist beliefs, and from age 14 had those beliefs inked on his face and body for the world to see. But a day would come when what Bryon felt on the inside no longer matched the tattoos on the outside.

The true story of Widner's excrutiating transformation inspired this startling chronicle of redemption from Israeli writer-director Guy Nattiv. Starring Jamie Bell, Danielle Macdonald and Oscar nominee Vera Farmiga, Skin boldly immerses us in a cultural contingent that, however extreme, demands to be reckoned with.
