    #Repost • @reelasian WE WILL BE BRAVE follows a talented group of artists from the Toronto-based artist collective The Good Guise, who share their lived experiences with inspiring confidence and welcome others to join in their mission of finding alternatives to shame and punishment. 

Intimate and deeply compassionate, director Chrisann Hessing’s feature debut, WE WILL BE BRAVE, is an evocative glimpse into a narrative shift around masculinity. Despite facing the challenges of a dire lack of resources and the burden of radicalized discrimination, the group’s affirming work recognizes healing as non-linear and our worth as inherent.

‣ Nov 11 | 12:00 PM at TIFF Bell Lightbox 3

Thank you to our community partner @ccncsj and community supporters @sketchtoronto and @workmanartsto for supporting this screening.
