Williams and featuring one of Nollywoods most watched actors Van Vicker. SKINNED also features Hollywood actors, Jasmine Burke from “Ride Along” with Ice Cube and Brad James from Tyler Perry’s “For Better or Worse”.

SKINNED tells the story of Jolie, a young girl who is so uncomfortable in her own skin and the stigma of what society places on dark skin people that she uses skin lightening creams to alter her complexion.  The harmful substances in the skin bleaching products had an adverse effect on her skin and mental well-being. This film pulls back the layers of the story as it relates to color, self-esteem, acceptance, and being secure with how you look.
SKINNED was produced by Clarice Kulah of Divine Entertainment Intl, Lotten Yeaney of LOT10 Productions who are both Liberian and Sharon Tomlinson of Studio 11 Films in collaboration with Van Vicker of Sky+Orange Productions.
