Sadly, the tendency to judge others by the color of their skin still runs rampant around the world. This documentary bridges the scientific with the social, presenting new research conducted by leading scientists that illustrates how and why variations in skin pigmentation occur. While in the past, science may’ve unwittingly contributed to issues of race by classifying individuals according to skin color, new findings, as seen in Skin Deep, are pointing towards information that will not only be critical for our survival as a species, but for our understanding of each other and our environments.
