The mask is the hard shell that young men are expected to face the world with. They are expected to show only their best selves and hide their insecurities and worries.

Young males would not need to create a mask and live behind it if society didn 't force them too.
Newsom says that as a culture, the society is pushing men to treat women in a certain way. The Mask You Live In” shows us that many gender traits are solely created by the society and that the images of men that boys receive at home and from television, movies, games and video sport events that give confidence to them to be aloof and unemotional, dominant and to resolve issues with violence. “We want to strengthen that loving is not just a feminine trait,” says Jennifer Siebel. “My son is always grabbing ice or getting Band Aids and taking care of the worn out knees and elbows. It’s about growing him as an individual
The documentary The Mask You Live In makes a strong case that the root of our foul culture comes from our society selling outdated and hazardous notions of masculinity. The overall image of the documentary depicts a culture that desperately needs to change. The film builds an argument about how early development of distinct attitudes in boys and negative reinforcement from authority figures and society have created men who are violent, callous, and self-destructive. We have been taught that the best man is the strong, silent type rather than the man who’s inclined to emote in a non-destructive manner when he’s upset.

What a great fun that I feel when I win a difficult video game, it is really exciting. It took me a very long period to forget the massage on the screen (GAME OVER ).But with the time I realized that Playing violent video games is no more likely to be damaging to young children’s behavior than those considered harmless, so that I choose some researches that can deal with case . More and more kids are playing video and computer games — especially ultra-violent ones that are top sellers. Research shows that children are also spending increasing amounts of time playing them: an average of 13 hours per week for boys and five hours for girls.
When it comes to films, I feel as if the soundtracks make them what they are. A film in which I feel as if the soundtrack shapes the overall effect of the film is "Waiting to Exhale." Waiting to exhale was a movie about four African American women who were all through different things in their lives from men, their jobs and family. There friendship bonded all of the women together and when they got together the could just exhale everything that they have been holding in this whole time and just be themselves without having to worry about anything else. The musical technique in which I feel they used is connecting the soundtrack to real life situations. The songs used in this film not only connected to real world situations but it also told

In both my professional and personal life I am in relationship with immigrants, some legal and some illegal. It is through relationships and other storytelling methods, like films, that we can empathize and understand another person’s or a group of people’s plight. The city of Pittsfield, where I live, is currently in discussion about accepting around 50 Syrian refugees into the community. My first thought when I found out about this was “How can I help?” These are people who have survived war, traveled extensively, and have no belongings and no money. The flip side to the argument, though, is about fear. Fear that they will take our jobs or not work at all. Fear that they will create gangs and commit crimes. Fear that their religion is promoting terrorism, a belief legitimized by the events
