Are we setting up our young men to be violent? A film screening of The Mask You Live In
April 25, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm| $10.00
How can we reduce mass shootings? What can be done to eliminate school shootings? Is it possible to curtail or even eradicate domestic abuse?
A key part of the answer is to look at the messages that boys get from day one. Come explore this timely topic at a screening of the film The Mask Your Live.
The Mask You Live In is a touching, heart-breaking and ultimately inspiriting look at how boys and young men struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity. Written, produced and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the film premiered at Sundance Film Festival in 2015.
After the screening, there will be a panel discussion featuring Mark Lederer, Director of Health and Wellness at Bishop O’Dowd High School, Oakland; Lisa Nichols, M.S., author of Surviving the High School Years with Your Sanity Intact; and parenting specialist Gerri Hofstetter, M.S. Doors open at 6:30 pm and the program will begin at 6:50 pm.
Teens 13 and older are encouraged to come to the screening. Coaches, educators, and those who work with youth- and men-based organizations are also highly encouraged to come.
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at https://mask-screening.eventbrite.com or at the door if not sold out. This screening is sponsored by Bay Area New Thought Evolving and Rising (BANTER).
