Although filming is in process, the making of Beneath the Veneer is already having an impact. Conversations are happening. Connections are being made. By way of engaging with the community at large, the filmmakers are working alongside an advisory team of nearly 30 members of the local community: artists, business men and women, educators, therapists, community organizers, elected officials, professors and more. The goal: to drive intentional and collaborative action that invigorates and regenerates communities in need across boundaries of race, class, gender and sexuality. Collectively, this team is building relationships within and beyond Asheville to promote an understanding of all intersections of social justice.
