The mask you live in

The Mask You Live In

I had previously written about director Jennifer Siebal Newsom and her Miss Representation film. This amazing lady is also the brain behind The Mask You Live In, which looks at how the media is failing boys and men.

The need to be “manly” and crying shows weakness are what have been floating around society for eons but how is this impacting on the men of tomorrow? What is being defined as masculinity today?

With much attention solely focused on how women are presented and how this affects them, I think it’s great that a spotlight is also shone on how men are affected because they are.

The film is due to be released at some point later this year so keep your eyes and ears peeled! Although it probably won’t reach Aus for about 10 years.
