Dentro da Minha Pele (In My Skin)

A doctor mistaken for a thief. A cleaning lady treated as a slave. A mother who lost her son was murdered by the police. A trans employee who is never promoted. What do they have in common? The colour of their skin. “Dentro da Minha Pele” (“In My Skin”) is an exploration of Brazil’s deep-rooted racism.
