Frederick Marx is attempting to raise funds for his new film. If his film of boys learning to be men inspires you, please go to the Kickstarter site to donate. There is less than two days for him to make his goal.
Academy Award Nominated Director Frederick Marx (bio below) is continuing the mission he began with Hoop Dreams of helping young boys in America grow up and realize their potential in society.
Millions of boys – black, white, Asian, Latino, rich and poor boys, good boys – smart, sensitive, and loving boys, vulnerable and open boys, are not fully growing up, are not accomplishing the transition from adolescence to adulthood. Without initiation and mentorship, these boys will never know what is sacred about their own masculinity. They’ll never know their own unique mission in life, they’ll never know what it is to serve family and community rather than self, they’ll never know their place in society, the depths of their own greatness or the true limits of their own reach, and they’ll never know what an empowering gift their own feelings can be – how they can learn to master them through acceptance; how their tears, their shame, their anger and fear can ignite the fires of passion, and can actually set them free. With your help, the feature film, Boys Become Men, can make that a reality.
Thanks for your help.
