Things of Beauty Burn

Directed By Skinner Myers

In this short, we experience what it’s like to be a black teenager in Russia. Our main character is thrust into a situation where he must manage the repercussions of his actions. We all make mistakes but, it may be a different mistake when you’re black in a world like Russia. Beautiful story, beautifully shot with an interesting take on the ending.
