Parents, See a Parent Version of the Film Your Students Will See in Religion Class

The Parent Education program and the Dragon Parents will host a screening of the film The Mask You Live In on Tuesday, February 6 in the Theatre. The evening will start promptly at 6:30 to allow time to view and discuss the film. Please use this form to RSVP for the event.

We are especially excited to have Mr. Ashanti Branch, Founder and Executive Director of The Ever Forward Club, and one of the youth leaders featured in the film, lead the discussion.

This film will be shown to all students in their Religion class, as part of the Safe Environment Curriculum, between January 24 and March 16. This is an excellent opportunity for parents and guardians to view and discuss the film that students will see!

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. 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.

Add the following at the bottom: Students will see a Youth Version of the film that is appropriate for classroom instruction. The Motion Picture Association of America has not rated this film. Common Sense Media rates the film as appropriate for ages 15 and above. Please email Mark Lederer, Director of Health and Wellness with any questions.
