The Mask You Live In Sydney

The Mask You Live In - Film Screening Plus Panel Discussion




Project Futures together with Collective Shout would like to invite you to the Sydney screening of The Mask You Live In.

The screening will be followed by a panel including Project Futures Stella Fella ambassadors Andrew Morley and Mike Campbell along with Collective Shout co-founder Melinda Tankard Reist.

From the creators of Miss Representation, 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.

Everyday our young people are exposed to more brands continuing to sexualise girls and objectify women. You can bring change to this sexploitation, stop companies from degrading women and prevent its devastating effects on young people.
