Initial Film Screening For MJC Civic Project

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, Feb. 18, at 7 p.m. in Forum 110 on East Campus, 435 College Ave., Modesto. 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.
