Description: “Machismo” is a series of video vignettes that address the construct of masculinity in relation to contemporary society. The socio-cultural definition of “machismo” includes the set of behaviors and rules of conduct that are indoctrinated into young boys from an extremely early age. These modelled and informally taught behaviors include: demanding toughness, strength, independence, and the internalization of emotion and expression. “Machismo” is intended to shed light on a serious problem, specifically within Latino culture, treating this complex and sensitive subject with humor.
