African film is making strides across seas
Our favorite “Single Lady”, LisaRaye McCoy is going to make her directorial debut come Spring 2015 in a movie about a hot topic in the black community:skin bleaching.
Aptly titled ‘Skinned’, the indie film (which McCoy also stars in) will touch on on skin bleaching, colourism and many issues that arise from them. Liberia’s golden boy, Van Vicker plays an African businessman who prefers “light-skinned” women, and unknowingly marries a “dark-skinned” woman who has bleached her skin. She has no childhood pictures of herself and lies that she suffers vitiligo. This big secret affects her ability to bear children in order to protect it.
