About the event:

This is the African premiere of The Mask You Live in, a thought-provoking documentary. The production follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating the world’s narrow definition of masculinity. The production has won 14 Film Awards.

Research shows that boys in the U.S. are more likely than girls to be diagnosed with a behavioural disorder, develop addictions to prescribed stimulant medications, fail out of school, binge drink, commit a violent crime, and/or take their own lives.

The Mask You Live In forms part of the Open Design Movie Programme.

Screening starts at 18:15

Tickets available at the Labia Theatre: R50
