Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot) and Australian actress Danielle Macdonald (Patti Cake$, SFF 2017) star in this remarkable story of a white supremacist who transforms for love.

Bell plays Byron Widner, a young man taken in by a group of racist skinheads led by the sinister Fred “Hammer” Krager and his wife, Shareen (Vera Farmiga). Raised as a white supremacist, Byron is an eager adherent and a fearless fighter, capable of terrifying acts of violence. When he meets and falls for Julie (Macdonald), a mother of three girls who's had her own history with white supremacists, Byron is faced with a difficult choice. Bell is brilliant as the tormented man trying to do the right thing, going to the extent of undertaking years' worth of excruciating removal of his racist tattoos. Skin takes us into a world of violent hatred and shows the difficulty and possibility of finding a different path.

Travelling Film Festival Newcastle, June 21 - 23: Tickets also available for Skin at TFF Newcastle.

Love triumphs over the darkest recesses of human hatred in 'Skin'. Writer/director Guy Nattiv transforms the true story of reformed racist Bryon Widner into a powerful drama with a fierce central performance from Jamie Bell.
