The Fitting In Package

Haut de la page

Two titles on adolescence from the female and male point of view, respectively. Girls Fitting In: This film features a discussion among a group of senior high school girls who recall the kinds of pressure they grew up with. They describe the importance to them of "fitting in" during their junior years, and how they view themselves as they approach graduation (15 min. 37 sec.). Being Male: One effect of the women's movement in western societies has been the gradual realization by some males that they are also trapped by stereotypes. In this film, sixteen- and seventeen-year-old boys talk candidly about how the traditional image of maleness fits their own experience as they re-evaluate their role in society (15 min. 12 sec.).

1996, 30 min 49 s
