Description

Associate Producers Maureen Pelton and Charlie Hartwell attending.

Few documentaries are as timely as The Mask You Live In, tackling the tough issues of how we raise boys and the violence in American male culture. Director Jennifer Siebel Newsom follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity.

Experts in neuroscience, psychology, sociology, sports, education, and media also weigh in, offering empirical evidence of the “boy crisis” and tactics to combat it. The Mask You Live In ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men.
