EXCLUSIVE: Live-action short film Skin, which won an Oscar earlier this year is set to air on ShortsTV along with a slew of other Oscar-nominated shorts.

The film, which is directed by Guy Nattiv, tells the story of a young boy who has an innocent encounter with a black man at a supermarket and his parents react to the exchange with racial violence. The two families find themselves in a clash with shocking consequences.
