The Man Who Sold His Skin
Oscar®-nominee for Best International Feature Film and the first Muslim woman to achieve this distinction, Tunisian director Kaouther Ben Hania introduces a thought-provoking story of a Syrian migrant’s skin-deep consciousness about what it takes to find the love of his life in Europe. Is the contemporary artist who contracts refugee Sam Ali (Yahya Mahayni) as his latest living piece of art liberating him from a doomed fate back home or enslaving him through objectification on display in museums around the world?
