A Personal Narrative about Consent
About the Films
Tough Guise 2
Violence, Manhood & American Culture
A young woman is raped when a one-night stand far from home goes terribly wrong. In the aftermath, as she struggles to make sense of what happened, she decides to make a film about the relationship between her own experience and the tangle of political, legal, and cultural questions that surround issues of sex and consent. Using a hidden camera, filmmaker Nancy Schwartzman goes head-to-head with the man who assaulted her, recording their conversation in an attempt to move through the trauma of her experience and achieve a better understanding of the sometimes ambiguous line between consent and coercion. The result is a powerful documentary about the terrible personal reality of rape and sexual violence -- and the more complicated and ambivalent ways sexual assault is often framed and understood in the wider culture.
Flirting With Danger
Power & Choice in Heterosexual Relationships
Social and developmental psychologist and author Lynn Phillips explores the line between consent and coercion in this thought-provoking look at popular culture and the ways real girls and women navigate their heterosexual relationships and hookups. Featuring dramatizations of interviews that Phillips conducted with hundreds of young women, the film examines how the wider culture's frequently contradictory messages about pleasure, danger, agency, and victimization enter into women's most intimate relationships with men. The result is a refreshingly candid, and nuanced, look at how young women are forced to grapple with deeply ambivalent cultural attitudes about female sexuality. Essential for courses that look at popular culture, gender norms, sexuality, and sexual violence.
A personal narrative about consent & coercion
Violence Against Women On the Streets
Filmmaker Maggie Hadleigh-West takes to the streets with a video camera to show how public space can be a war zone for women, bringing us face to face with a succession of men who casually heckle, follow, touch, and disparage her without a second thought. By turning the tables and confronting her abusers on camera, she also shows how women can reclaim space that men too often claim as their own. The film may have been released twenty years ago, but it comes across with newfound power and urgency today as we find ourselves in a full-scale national reckoning with the normalization of sexual harassment and abuse. War Zone not only gives voice to women who have been abused and silenced by men and male culture, it also forces men to directly experience what it feels like to be routinely harassed, abused, assaulted, and humiliated. An indispensable teaching tool for our current moment.
In this highly anticipated update of the influential and widely acclaimed Tough Guise, pioneering anti-violence educator and cultural theorist Jackson Katz argues that the ongoing epidemic of men's violence in America is rooted in our inability as a society to move beyond outmoded ideals of manhood. In a sweeping analysis that cuts across racial, ethnic, and class lines, Katz examines mass shootings, day-to-day gun violence, violence against women, bullying, gay-bashing, and American militarism against the backdrop of a culture that has normalized violent and regressive forms of masculinity in the face of challenges to traditional male power and authority. Along the way, the film provides a stunning look at the violent, sexist, and homophobic messages boys and young men routinely receive from virtually every corner of the culture, from television, movies, video games, and advertising to pornography, the sports culture, and U.S. political culture. Tough Guise 2 stands to empower a new generation of young men -- and women -- to challenge the myth that being a real man means putting up a false front and engaging in violent and self-destructive behavior
