Event Details

“PROYECTO HISTORIAS DE HOMBRES - ¡EN VOZ ALTA!” (The Men's Story Project: Out Loud!")

Spanish with English subtitles. 107 min. 2013.

Followed by discussion with the director, Dr. Josie Lehrer

What does it supposedly mean to “be a man,” and how are men's social roles changing? Described by viewers as “courageous,” “a gift for the soul,” "motivating" and “necessary,” this documentary highlights a diverse group of Chilean men — celebrities, community leaders, and first-time presenters — sharing personal stories with a live audience at a popular theater in Santiago. With unusual public candor, the men’s stories explore social beliefs about masculinity and gender relations, and links with issues including fatherhood, ending the cycle of domestic violence, LGBT rights, classism, physical disability and self-expression, and HIV/AIDS.

The 12 presenters include Coco Legrand - Chile’s most popular comic; Pedro Sanchez Melivilo - a leader of Chile's Mapuche community; and Andrés Ignacio Rivera Duarte - recipient of the Felipa de Souza Award of the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission. Mediums include prose, comedy, dance, photography and video.
