Skin (Based on an Extraordinary True Story)

Skin is a movie about Apartheid in South Africa.

My mother grew up in South Africa, and while my mom did not cheer Apartheid on, she did not speak harshly of it. As a result, I am ashamed to say, I did not think it was such a big deal. Until I saw this movie and became truly educated about what Apartheid was and how it affected people’s lives.

Skin was not only about Apartheid; it was about human courage, misery and strength. As with all life, it was bitter sweet. While some wrongs were rectified, others were not. The most shocking thing of all to me, was that this woman still lives. Here is the Trailer:
