36. Miss Representation - Film Documentary

Program: ESC of Central Ohio Achievement & Leadership Services

Dates: 7/24/2018

This film is being offered during the PBL Ohio Institute, but is open to anyone to attend. Registration is required. In the documentary Miss Representation, Jennifer Newsom exposes the bold reality of western culture and our continuous idea that a woman's ability to hold positions of power and influence in society is being overlooked by her sexuality and beauty. The movie challenges how mainstream media's sexism plays a pivotal role in a woman's ability to attain a leadership role in a society where the media is the most convincing force shaping norms. The message is clear: a woman's power lies in her youth, physical attractiveness, her sexuality, and not in her capability as a front-runner. Watch as this documentary builds momentum with an array of inspirational stories and interviews with leading academics, journalists, entertainers, and activists.

37. The Mask You Live In - Film Documentary

Program: ESC of Central Ohio Achievement & Leadership Services

Dates: 7/25/2018

This Film Screening is being held in conjunction with the PBL Ohio Institute. It is open for anyone to attend, but registration is required. "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. Pressured by the media, their peer group, and even the adults in their lives, our protagonists confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify and degrade women, and resolve conflicts through violence. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class, and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become “real” men. Experts in neuroscience, psychology, sociology, sports, education, and media also weigh in, offering empirical evidence of the “boy crisis” and tactics to combat it. "The Mask You Live In" ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men.
