THE MAN WHO SOLD HIS SKIN

Don't miss this French/Tunisian co-production, Academy Award® Nominee for Best International Feature

A gorgeous and provocative tale by up-and-coming Tunisian filmmaker, Kaouther Ben Hania (Beauty and the Dogs).

Sam Ali, a young sensitive and impulsive Syrian, left his country for Lebanon to escape the war. To be able to travel to Europe and live with the love of his life, he accepts to have his back tattooed by one of the World’s most sulfurous contemporary artist. Turning his own body into a prestigious piece of art, Sam will however come to realize that his decision might actually mean anything but freedom.

The Man Who Sold His Skin is an allegory about one’s personal freedom in an inegalitarian system tackling broader meaning about our real-world issues.
