This is not a film about men versus women. BEYOND MEN AND MASCULINITY explores how men see themselves, how they relate to the people they care about and how the personal affects the political. What happens when men are taught to shut themselves off from their feelings because they want to be strong and independent? What is the connection between shame and male violence?
Why is it so difficult for us to appreciate kindness and compassion in men? And what role do women play in defining what is expected of men and masculinity? A discussion about these sometimes uncomfortable questions is more important today than ever. From the therapy room to the political battlefield, this provocative film offers a clear insight into why we need to look beyond traditional definitions of men and masculinity.
