About the film: 

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 groups, and even the adults in their lives, the Film's protagonists confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify 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 do better to raise a healthier generation of boys and young men. To learn more, please visit www.therepresentationproject.org
