Friday Night at the Meaningful Movies: "TOUGH GUISE 2" (Wallingford)

In a permaculture context (where Earthships fit so nicely), it should be as much about agriculture as it is about culture.

And this is a topic which, in my humble opinion, is totally under-discussed and is critical to a new sane culture (which we clearly don't have at the moment).

Please RSVP on the original event to show our support to the Meaningful Movies:

(…Please come at 6:30 and visit with your neighbors!)
FILM: "TOUGH GUISE 2" (80 min, Jeremy Earp, 2013)
In this highly anticipated update of the influential and widely acclaimed TOUGH GUISE, pioneering anti-violence educator and cultural theorist Jackson Katz argues that the ongoing epidemic of men's violence in America is rooted in our inability as a society to move beyond outmoded ideals of manhood.
In a sweeping analysis that cuts across racial, ethnic, and class lines, Katz examines mass shootings, day-to-day gun violence, violence against women, bullying, gay-bashing, and American militarism against the backdrop of a culture that has normalized violent and regressive forms of masculinity in the face of challenges to traditional male power and authority. Along the way, the film provides a stunning look at the violent, sexist, and homophobic messages boys and young men routinely receive from virtually every corner of the culture, from television, movies, video games, and advertising to pornography, the sports culture, and US political culture.
‘TOUGH GUISE 2’ stands to empower a new generation of young men -- and women -- to challenge the myth that being a real man means putting up a false front and engaging in violent and self-destructive behavior.
Light snacks.
