Veracity is about a popular African American student, Olivia, who is outed by her friends after she acts on feelings for a new girl at her high school. Written by Janaya Greene when she was a high school senior on the South Side of Chicago, Veracity explores the tensions and stigma of being gay in the Black community. Veracity was directed by Seith Mann (Walking Dead, Homeland).
This was a really cute, short piece. I think these two young actresses did a really decent job with their roles; viewer feels slightly voyeuristic while observing awkward teenage coming of age scenes. Don't skip this one!
something sweet and special in a condensed story which I don't regularly find in modern independent films surrounding issues that deal with the lgbt, etc. community. this is beautiful and it makes me proud. thank you.
