The conversation on appreciating one’s skin colour just got more interesting as Nollywood actress, Beverly Naya made a short film about it.

Skin is a feature documentary about exploring through identity the meaning of beauty in all the different shades of black. It is set in present day Lagos, where Beverly goes on a journey to learn about contrasting perceptions of beauty.

She speaks to school children, traders, artists, beauty entrepreneurs and sex workers. This narrative is interwoven by poignant personal accounts of individuals who have dealt with the pressure to conform certain standards of beauty, revealing how colourism continues to shape the face of the entertainment industry in Africa.

Beverly concludes her journey with a trip to her home town exploring her rich cultural heritage with her mother and grand mother, between the three generations of beautiful black women who through sheer hard work and self love have built useful businesses laying a solid legacy for her and many like her to build upon.
