dir. Guy Nattiv, USA 2018, 118 min, drama

POLISH PREMIERE.

After a difficult childhood drives him into the grasps of a white supremacist gang, Bryon Widner (Jamie Bell, delivers a visceral, explosive performance) tries to escape to a new life, questioning whether he’s capable of undoing the evil he’s done. Turning his back on hatred and violence means undergoing painful and expensive operations to remove the tattoos that signified his terrible past — a process only possible with the support of a Black activist. The true story of Widner’s excruciating transformation inspired this startling chronicle of redemption from Israeli writer-director Guy Nattiv, whose short film version of this tale just won him an Oscar.
