"About Men" is a film exploring masculinity and personal growth through the lens of a modern 'men's group' in Sandpoint Idaho. This interview with Maja Bugge, the film-maker, was recorded in early July 2013 by Boysen Hodgson of the ManKind Project USA.
The film explores emotionality, support, men's experience, methods for doing personal development work ... and general concepts about what it means to be a man today, and how some men are working together to build a new way forward.
"About Men is a special film. Like a pointillist painter, Maja Bugge rejects a broad canvas filled with abstract shapes about "men", or "masculinity", and instead looks close, really close, at the lives of men struggling to come to terms with what it means to be an adult in contemporary America. Anguishing and exhilarating, it is an important document of our time." - Michael Kimmel, Ph.D, American Author and Lecturer on men and masculinity
