Event Program:

Introduction

Movie Presentation
"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. 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."

Casual Discussion Meetup at Wilde Café & Spirits
Join us for drinks, light appetizers, or dessert afterwards to discuss the documentary. The owner has graciously agreed to staff accordingly so that they can provide the best service to us and confirmed they'll be open until 11PM.
