Trailer Alert: Skin

by Melissa Silverstein on February 5, 2009

skin_27x40_fin1Skin is the true story of Sandra, a dark skinned girl born to white parents in apartheid South Africa and her struggles to fit in first as a white, then as a black.  A way better synopsis is here.

The film premiered last fall at the Toronto Film Festival and just won the audience award at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.  I haven’t read about any national release but it will be playing in LA at the Pan African Film Festival on February 14th and 16th.

Check out the trailer

I loved this when I saw it at the TIFF in September. The real life Sandra was there that night too so very cool experience.
