The Mask You Live In is a 2015 documentary film written, directed, and produced by Jennifer Siebel Newsom. It premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. The film explores what Newsom perceives to be harmful notions about masculinity in mainstream American culture. The film addresses similar themes on identity as Miss Representation, such as the impact of gender socialization and gender representation.

Newsom's inspiration for making the film came from becoming pregnant with her son. In an interview she said, "It was really important to me that I could nurture a son who could be true to his authentic self, who wouldn't always feel like he had to prove his masculinity. There's so much loneliness, pain, and suffering when one is pretending to be someone that they're not." Newsom raised $101,111 on Kickstarter towards making the film.

I'm (re-)visiting Unanswered topics : search.php?search_id=unanswered

Watched the documentary earlier today.

Very interesting, pertaining and deeply moving.

The scene with the "mask on paper" passed around and everyone reads both cover and back of the paper. :cry: :cry:
Even just for that scene I recommend it.

Thanks for the recommendation.

Watched the latest video from the The Raw Attractive Power All Men Have that Women Won't Admit to Feeling girl.

Quote:
There are 3 masks women wear that mask 3 incredibly vulnerable deep desires that they yearn for men to understand. To truly understand women you must understand these 3 deep desires. Most men fall for the mask.
Very pertaining to the documentary / society's expectations and underlying issues / desires.
She even drew the masks on paper. :lol:
