SKIN

Director : Guy Nattiv / 21 mins / USA / 2018
SYNOPSIS
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.

FACTS ABOUT THE FILM
SKIN was adapted as a feature, starring Jamie Bell and Vera Farmiga and premiered at the
2018 Toronto Film Festival where it won the Fipresci Critic’s Prize. It will make its European
premiere in 2019 at The Berlin Film Festival, and was acquired by A24 for distribution in late

2019. Although both based on true events, and both titled SKIN, the short and feature are different
stories entirely. The feature is based on the life of reformed white power skinhead Bryon Widner.
All three features Guy Nattiv has directed originated as shorts, including “Strangers” and “The
Flood”. He believes there is no better way to hone your skills as a storyteller and test the waters of
the world you want to dive into, than making a short film to explore and create.
