A film that explores the struggles young men face with defining masculinity will be screened in the Tri-Cities.
The Mask You Live In, sponsored by the Benton-Franklin Health District and 21st Century Learning Centers, will show from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 13 and Nov. 3 at Educational Service District 123, 3918 W. Court St., Pasco. A panel discussion will take place after the 90 minute film.
The documentary explores personal narratives of young boys and men and pairs their stories with experts who discuss how stereotypes could affect their everyday lives.
“Our hope is that this film sparks a local conversation on how stereotypes and unrealistic views of masculinity can impact boys and young men and what parents, educators, coaches and youth workers can do to raise a healthier generation of boys and young men,” said Vanessa McCollum, health educator at Benton-Franklin Health District.
