Neutrogena® released the trailer for the documentary short, titled “In the Sun,” Executive Produced by Emmy Award Winning Actress Kerry Washington. “In the Sun” is the first release from the facial skincare brand’s content studio, Neutrogena Studios.
Directed by Kristelle Laroche and Bobby Moser, “In the Sun” is a poignant and inspiring documentary that lets viewers follow the skin health journeys of seven families facing extraordinary circumstances as they navigate the long-term effects of living life in the sun, while still living vibrant lives. This documentary short comes at a critical moment, delivering key information and dispelling common misconceptions around skin health and sun safety through real stories that span across generation, race and gender, led by the expertise of Los Angeles-based dermatologist Dr. Shirley Chi.
“One of the reasons that I was inspired to work with Neutrogena as a Brand Ambassador and creative consultant is that the company places equal importance on both health and beauty. Now Neutrogena Studios will utilize the power of story to educate and motivate people to take action when it comes to their skin health,” said Brand Ambassador and film Executive Producer, Kerry Washington. “In the Sun” is a powerful example of the impact that real stories, shot from a diverse range of perspectives, can have on inspiring necessary health outcomes. I’m looking forward to sharing this educational documentary short in collaboration with Neutrogena in order to raise awareness around self-care, skin health, and sun safety. And I am excited about what narratives are yet to come, in the future, from Neutrogena Studios.”
“In the Sun” will be available on demand and to stream on April 27. It will also be available to community organizations and schools interested in hosting their own screening, in order to increase access to the film’s important message.
