Synopsis:
Skin is one of the most extraordinary stories to emerge from apartheid South Africa: Sandra Laing (Sophie Okonedo) is a black child born in the 1950s to white Afrikaners (Sam Neill and Alice Krige), unaware of their black ancestry, who raise their child as a "white girl". But from the age of ten Sandra is shunned by white society, thus begins Sandra’s thirty-year struggle to reconcile her heritage and find acceptance in a society torn by race and politics.

White or black, we’re all human! - Skin review by TB

Spoiler Alert
08/01/2018

Based on a true story during the time of the apartheid, this film shows the worst and best sides of humanity to remind us all that whatever our skin colour or origin, we’re all human.

It’s well filmed with scenes that are both touching and upsetting. Hitting home a dark period in history where racism was rife and reminding us that sadly racism still unbelievably exists in the world today.

We all need to accept and love each other, as we are one and the same.

Never give up the fight against racism!
