Yes, you read that right. Actress LisaRaye McCoy has joined the ranks of those calling the shots behind the camera, directing her first feature film, "Skinned," for the Atlanta-based production company Studio 11 Films.
More accurately, McCoy co-directed the film with Avery O. Williams, who is a professor at Morehouse College, and who also wrote the film's script with co-producer Clarice Kulah.
As hinted by the title, the film addresses colorism within the black community, and centers on a young woman named Jolie, "whose insecurities about her skin color, misconception about beauty, and search for romance causes her to bleach her skin beyond recognition in an attempt to capture the heart of the perfect suitor, leads to the detriment of her health."
