FINDING KIND

TUESDAY, APRIL 30

Director Lauren Paul (US 2011) 78 min

TUESDAY, MARCH 12  •  6:30

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. Research shows that, compared to girls, boys in the U.S. are more likely to be diagnosed with a behavior disorder, prescribed stimulant medications, fail out of school, binge drink, commit a violent crime, and/or take their own lives. Through interviews with youth program leaders, psychologists, sociologists and candid male middle schoolers, filmmaker Jennifer Siebel Newsom examines the problems caused by societal expectations of male stoicism.  Director: Jennifer Siebel Newsom.
