SKIN:  2019 Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film

Thursday, January 23

6:30 PM


On the stage at the Academy Awards in February 2019, Israeli director Guy Nattiv accepted his Oscar for Best Live Action Short invoking his grandparents, who are Holocaust survivors. “The bigotry they experienced . . . we see that everywhere today,” he said. “This film . . . is about teaching your kids a better way.”

Skin, a short bio-drama set in the United States, is a powerful parable about a neo-Nazi skinhead and his son, about the sins of a father and the awakening of a child. It is a lesson in history repeating itself in different guises.

Join us for a screening of the film followed by a discussion of that lesson and what it was like for Nattiv to be the first Israeli to take home an Academy Award in 41 years.
