Summary
"Filmed at La Peña Cultural Center in Berkeley with a standing-room-only audience, this film shows the powerful debut presentation of the Men's Story Project - a new performance/dialogue project exploring social ideas about masculinity for the purpose of health and justice. Described by audience members as "groundbreaking," "transformative," "a gift" and "something that needs to keep happening," this bold performance highlights a diverse group of 16 Bay Area artists, activists, and first-time presenters, ages 22-60, sharing stories about their own lives through slam poetry, monologues, music and dance. The stories address platonic love between men; struggles with Islam, Christianity, homophobia and HIV/AIDS; disability and sexuality; testicular cancer and personal wholeness; images of African American masculinity; a journey from perpetrating domestic violence to becoming an anti-violence activist; men's public restroom rituals; an Oakland activist's refusal to continue intergenerational patterns of violence; costs of homophobia for people of all sexual orientations; spirituality and transformation in San Quentin; transgender identity and gender fluidity; relationships with fathers and other family members; gratitude to lifelong mentors; and other subjects"--Container
