The Skin We’re In invites viewers into the mind of an emerging intellectual and firebrand. Journalist and activist Desmond Cole. Boasting intimate access to one of Canada’s most intriguing voices, it profiles Cole as his most exciting chapter unfolds. This is his journey from journalist to activist, unfolding in real time. We follow Cole as he travels across Canada in pursuit of stories, examples, and knowledge about Black identities and experiences.
The Skin We’re In is a procedural documentary. It is an investigation. And it is a cry from the heart. Cole’s journey is not just toward discovery, but toward the unveiling of a desperate, hidden truth: the truth about the skin he’s in. And the Canada we thought we knew.
