I am pleased to announce the UK Charity Premiere of SKIN, to benefit FilmAid (www.filmaid.org) - a charity which brings wonderful films to war-torn regions of the world, providing a few hours of respite from their daily struggles. They also train people to make their own films and document their experiences.

I believe this film and charity align themselves perfectly with the aims of i-peace, and hope you will do your utmost to promote this event. Tickets are currently on sale through ticketmaster and are £25.00.

The event will be attended by a host of celebrities and the stars of the film, and the screening will be followed by a Q&A.

SKIN

Starring Sophie Okonedo, Sam Neill and Alice Krige

2nd July, 2009
Doors Open 6:15 – Screening 7:15 pm

“A measured and harrowing central performance from Sophie Okonedo...
Her anguish lingers long after the credits roll.” - Mike Goodridge, Screen Daily

“Emotionally mesmerizing. Unmissable.” - Chrissy Iley, writer, Sunday Times

SKIN is based on the extraordinary true story of Sandra Laing – a black child born in 1950s South Africa to white Afrikaner parents, unaware of their black ancestry. Abraham and Sannie Laing are rural shopkeepers serving the local black community. They lovingly bring Sandra up as their ‘white’ little girl. But at the age of ten, she is expelled from school and driven out of white society. The film follows Sandra’s thirty-year journey from rejection to acceptance, betrayal to reconciliation, as she struggles to define her place in a changing world - and triumphs against all odds.

I love “Skin” – It is an important awesome film and a must see for everyone around the world. What this film encourages and inspires is that we must go beyond the “Skin” and the physical. We must deal with people heart to heart beneath the surface of the “Skin.” When you do that you are transformed because the heart reflects love and love brings peace.!!! Thank you Anthony Fabian for going deeper and encouraging others to do the same.

We are all genetically mixed and hence all equal in the sight of God and of everyone else.
Comment by Brenda Holder on June 23, 2009 at 11:10am
The differences in skin do not matter, as we all all equal before God.
Love towards all humankind, is the first and foremost ingredient in our hearts .
Love your neighbour as you love yourself.
Always be at peace with the world. Brenda from South Africa
