Film Screening and dialog
The Boy Game
By New Day Films
Join us for a dialogue about boys, boy culture and bullying. What is the connection to gender based violence? This will be a roundtable dialog. One question will be how can mentors of boys contribute to solutions.
“The Boy Game”, a 16 minute film, tackles bullying among boys at its core: the culture of toughness and silence boys live by. Targets need to be protected, absolutely, but rather than vilify bullies, “The Boy Game” looks to unpack the complex dynamics that lead some boys to bully and the majority to stand watching in silent conflict.
Discussion Facilitated by Matthew Swoveland, Director of Youth and Prevention Programs with The Second Step, Newton MA.
