Bernadine (Woodard) is a dedicated prison warden who oversees death row inmates in a facility housing mostly African-American men, but whose faith in the justice system is increasingly strained. Chukwu’s sensitive screenplay is excellently served by Woodard, who’s mesmerising as the quietly tormented Bernadine, herself a prisoner of the system she serves.

A beautifully shot satire concerning art worlds, refugee politics in Europe and the possibility of freedom.
Sam Ali, a young and impulsive Syrian, left his country for Lebanon to escape the war. But in order to be able to travel to Europe and live with the love of his life, he agrees to have his back tattooed by one of by the World's most provocative contemporary artists. Turning his own body into a prestigious piece of art, Sam will come to realize that his decision might actually mean anything but freedom.
Based on a true story, the inspiration for THE MAN WHO SOLD HIS SKIN came from an exhibition at the Louvre in 2012 devoted to Belgian artist Wim Delvoye. It featured his infamous human work of art Tim Steiner – who was tattooed by the artist in 2006 and regularly goes on display in galleries around the world to this day. Featuring a memorable supporting turn from Monica Bellucci, stunning cinematography from Christopher Aoun (CAPERNAUM) and a glittering score by Amine Bouhafa, THE MAN WHO SOLD HIS SKIN combines a biting art world satire with a more considered critique of the international refugee crisis, creating an unforgettable cinematic experience.
