|Film Screening: The Mask You Live In
The Mask You Live In follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity. Pressured by the media, their peer group, and even the adults in their lives, our protagonists confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify and degrade women, and resolve conflicts through violence. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class, and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become “real” men. This film illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men.
This film screening is co-sponsored by the Paul J. Burgett Intercultural Center, the Gandhi Institute, Center for Student Conflict Management, and MOVE.
