A documentary based on a survey of more than 600 students from kindergarten through high school, that provides an objective view of young people’s attitudes toward gender, or male and female roles. Candid interviews and spontaneous scenes of young people interacting at school, at play, and in the community, help create an awareness of one’s assumptions about maleness and femaleness.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
