MJC Screens Documentary – The Mask You Live In


MJC presents screening of documentary The Mask You Live In
The Modesto Junior College Civic Engagement Project (CEP) invites the community to a screening of the documentary film The Mask You Live In on Thursday, February 18, at 7 p.m. in Forum 110 on East Campus, 435 College Avenue. The free event is part of the CEP Spring Film and Lecture Series. Campus parking is available for $2 in student parking lots.

The Mask You Live In claims that boys grow up in a culture with a narrow definition of masculinity that encourages them to disconnect from their emotions and value aggression over compassion. Raising a healthier generation of boys and men, the film suggests, depends largely on recognizing and transforming the cultural messages directed at them.

A facilitated discussion will follow the film.

The rest of the Spring Film and Lecture Series schedule includes:

March 10 – Merchants of Doubt – documentary film
March 17 – First Generation – documentary film
March 31 – Black in America: A Continuing Conversation
April 14 – The Burden – documentary film
