FREE Public Screening: January 17, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. in the MACC on Princeton Academy's campus
Please join us for a free public screening and discussion (for adults) of the documentary The Mask You Live In on Wednesday, January 17, 2018, at 6:30 p.m. in the McPherson Athletic and Convocation Center (MACC) on campus. Princeton Academy's vision to lead a national reinvention of boys' education for a new generation of enlightened men is at the heart of this event and our brave discussion about masculinity and raising sons.
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.
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.
