Filmed live at a popular theater in Santiago, Chile, this groundbreaking documentary shows fourteen Chilean men – celebrities, community leaders, and first-time presenters – sharing raw, personal stories that explore social ideas about masculinity.
The presenters share stories about family and romantic relationships; substance abuse; bullying; domestic violence; homosexuality and the Church; transgender identity and LGBTQ+ rights; HIV/AIDS; fatherhood and divorce; manual labor and classism; physical disability and self-actualization; gratitude to mentors; and the healing power of self-acceptance, community and love. Mediums include prose, stand-up comedy, music, dance, photography and video.
The presenters include Coco Legrand – Chile’s most popular comic; Pedro Sánchez Melivilo, an indigenous Mapuche community leader; and Andrés Rivera Duarte, the first man to legally change sex in Chile.
