Watch: Trailer for Doc Challenging Hyper-Masculinity, ‘The Mask You Live In’

“Stop crying” because any emotions besides anger are feminine. “Be a man” because young boys should know what that means out of the womb…

These phrases and ideas are just a couple that are being confronted in a new documentary titled, The Mask You Live In .

Created by the folks behind 2011′s Miss Representation , the film explores the negative effects of hyper-masculinity in American culture.  Check out the trailer above and look for its release sometime in 2014.
