Film Screening: The Mask You Live In

Location: UCB Room 100

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. Written, produced and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the film premiered at Sundance Film Festival in 2015.

There will be a local screening of The Mask You Live In on November 4th, 2015 at the University of Hawaii at Hilo, University Classroom Building Room 100. The event will start with a pre-reception at 4:30PM, with the film screening to follow at 5:15PM.

After the screening, there will be community discussion led by Kata Issari, Joyful Heart Foundation Vice President, Hawaii Region and Dr. Sulma Gandhi, Director of UH Hilo’s Student Health & Wellness Programs. This event is free and open to the UH community and general public, sponsored by Joyful Heart Foundation, UH Hilo's Student Health & Wellness Programs, Men of Strength, Women’s Center and the Diversity Commit-tee.

The media is invited to attend the screening and cover the post-screening discussion. For more information, please contact Dr. Sulma Gandhi at sulma@hawaii.edu or (808) 932-7458.

The documentary presents the personal narratives of young boys and men and features experts in neuroscience, psychology, sociology, sports, education, and media, further exploring how gender stereotypes are interconnected with race, class, and circumstance. The Mask You Live In ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men.
