Equilibrium - Self Harmony

Skin Deep [Back]
 

This video requires QuickTime www.apple.com/quicktime

Description
Skin Deep tells the story of Romo a 15-year-old mixed race boy, who struggles to deal with who he is. Haunted by memories of racial abuse and violence suffered throughout his childhood, Romo has taken to concealing his mixed race identity and begins to hang around with a gang of overtly racist white youths. The film examines the situations that combine to push Romo's internal conflict to the limit. He faces himself in the mirror - two cultures, two identities. Irreconcilable.
