What Men Fear Most

 

London-based actor and poet Elliot Barnes-Worrell talks about the conceptions of masculinity that inspired his film, Bloke Fears: 

"I find it really sad that emotional expression isn't associated with masculinity. It's so important to be masculine, it's something that people kill and die for.

If you are emotional you are feared and targeted, therefore protecting a false concept of masculine identity is what we do, even at the cost of our mental health."
