Film Talk: The Men's Story Project, with Natalie Millman

Founded and directed by Josie Lehrer (ScD, Harvard School of Public Health),The Men's Story Project is a performance and dialogue project that explores social ideas about masculinity for the purpose of health and justice. This film debuts the stories of a diverse group of 16 Bay Area artists, activists, and first-time presenters, ages 22-60, who tell about their lives through slam poetry, monologues, music, and dance.

Facilitating discussion is Natalie Millman, MSW student at Columbia University School of Social Work. Natalie lives in Manhattan and works as an advocate for a variety of issues. Amongst other activities, Natalie teaches writing classes in Manhattan and has facilitated formal conversations for groups since May 2012.

Film segments/chapters will be screened for an hour, followed by an hour's discussion on topics presented by such people as Robert Haaland, the first transgender candidate elected to San Francisco public office; Juan Cuba (San Francisco Women Against Rape); Leroy Moore (Sins Invalid); Galen Peterson (Art in Action); and members of the Berkeley and San Francisco slam poetry championship teams.

For those wishing to stay longer and see the full film (114 minutes), additional screening will take place from 6-7pm.
