The Mask You Live In—Home Rental

LICENSED FOR HOME VIEWING ONLY. NOT FOR EDUCATIONAL SCREENINGS!
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.

Subtitles/Captions may be turned on in the player for the following languages: Arabic, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Czech, Danish, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Korean, Norwegian, Portuguese (Brazil), Portuguese (Portugal), Serbia, Spanish, and Swedish.

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.

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.

No public performance rights, including classroom screenings, included. This is for private home viewing purposes only.
