“The Mask You Live In”

The documentary follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity.

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.
