The Pagu Pictures released the Brazilian trailer for Skin, which opens in theaters on March 26. Based on the real story of Bryon 'Babs' Widner (Jamie Bell), the film, directed by Guy Nattiv, accompanies the transformation of the violent young man, tattooed from head to toe with racist symbols, who decides to leave the neo-Nazi faction where he was raised by gang leaders. When falling in love with a single mother (Danielle MacDonald) of three daughters, Bryon just wants to have a normal life with his new family, but the break with the movement brings serious threats and risks not only for him, but also for his wife and girls.
Watch the trailer in the video above.
Screened at the Toronto Film Festivals, where he received the Critics' Prize, Berlin and Tribeca, the production stems from the short namesake that won an Oscar to Nattiv in February 2019. Jamie Bell's performance, which was revealed as a teenager with the British film Billy Elliot, as well as that of Danielle MacDonald (Happy Cake$), have been acclaimed by the specialized critics. Also in the cast are the award-winning actress Vera Farmiga, Bill Camp, Daniel Henshall and Mike Colter, in the role of Daryle Jenkins, founding activist for “One People's Movement”, who helped Bryon to rebuild. He works to rescue members of segregationist groups and neutralize, with the FBI, the cells that spread racial hatred in the United States.
Israeli screenwriter and director Guy Nattiv, grandson of four holocaust survivors, says that seeing his face clean and reading about the dangerous and painful process experienced by the former American skinhead in a newspaper in Tel Aviv, he wanted to know more and was encouraged by grandfather to go ahead with his statement: "These are the stories that the world needs most".
