Garth has been developing White Ribbon NZ’s brilliant Raise Our Men film.
Professionals working with men have quickly realised the value of the film to prompt discussion about very relevant issues and have incorporated the film into their work. “I hope the film has a long and varied life’ says Garth, “and gets into many diverse settings to be used in new ways to promote positive male behaviour with as many men as possible. It really has that potential”.
Incidentally, the most similar film produced in New Zealand was the Expressions of Sexuality television programme about men’s sexuality that Garth was the researcher and interviewer for, 34 years ago. A big shout out to Allison Webber, the series producer, for such a brave project way back then.
“Hopefully it won’t take so long to get much more media exploring masculinity in a real and positive way” says Garth.
