The Mask You Live In
$5 SUGGESTED LOVE DONATION
We all know how challenging it can be raising boys in America today. Even for adult males, the values and definition of what a man has significantly changed, a lot! This film offers us an in-depth exploration of how America’s narrow definition of ‘masculinity’ is actually crippling young boys and grown men. Furthermore, we get a better understanding of how girls and women are also harmed. The big question is what can we do about it? The Mask You Live In gives us some answers.
We see boys and young men in this film struggling to figure out their roles and self-definitions. They are under pressure from old patterns of parenting as well as from pressure from their peers. Is it any wonder they often have problems with intimacy and self-worth, not to mention their issues trying to relate to females? Disconnected from their emotions, they often objectify and degrade women, while simultaneously perceiving physical violence as an expression of strength and power. Add social media to the mix, and it’s not surprising that we see a lot of identity issues prevalent among young men in today’s culture.
Despite these multiple problematic conditions, we know we can raise “real men.” The Mask You Live In offers us a clearer path forward to defining and growing up a healthier generation.
Bring yourself and a young boy or girl to watch this film with us, and let’s have a great discussion after the screening.
