SKIN (20 min) USA

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. 

Director - Guy Nattiv

Nattiv is an acclaimed filmmaker from Israel.
