Her parents, Abraham and Sannie, are white Afrikaners, unaware of their black ancestry. They are shopkeepers in a remote area of the Eastern Transvaal and, despite Sandra’s mixed-race appearance, have lovingly brought her up as their ‘white’ little girl. Skin tells the story of a brown girl and her white biological parents.

David and Greg’s ’round-the-world journey takes them deep into the heart of the cultures, knowledge, and communities at stake. THE LINGUISTS world premiered at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival.
