“The Mask You Live In”

June 27 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

In partnership with the City of Charlottesville, Light House Studio and Vinegar Hill Theatre are sponsoring Unity Days. Each summer, Unity Days brings together community members of Charlottesville in the spirit of healing and unity. The events educate, inspire, and honor people in our community in order to move towards economic and racial justice.

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

Join us as we analyze systems of oppression and dissect their impact on the mental health of male youth in our society.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with community members.

The event is free and open to the public.
