Watch ‘The Skinny’ Starring Jussie Smollett and Shanika Warren-Markland (Full Movie)

Patrick Ian Polk's 'The Skinny'

Is gay cinema the new champion of black Independent film? Filmmaker Patrick Ian Polk‘s latest project, The Skinny, introduces viewers to a new group of up-and-coming black actors in a very intriguing full-length feature film that explores the taboo subject of gay relationships in the black community.

The ensemble cast includes Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman, Shanika Warren-Markland (“Demons Never Die”), Jussie Smollett (the former child actor of “Mighty Ducks”), Blake Young-Fountain, and Anthony Burrell.

The film’s synopsis gets straight to the point: “Drinking, drugs, hidden desire and the demands of promiscuity put friendship, trust and even lives at risk.”
