The Making of a Man — Virtual Cinema

March 1, 2021March 14, 2021

In coordination with the March 9 panel “Masculinity & Culture — The Making of a Man” with writer/filmmaker Lo Dagerman and author Mark Greene, Scandinavia House presents a Virtual Cinema event of Lo Dagerman’s 2019 film The Making of a Man from March 1 through 14.

The Making of a Man explores courage, cowardice and toxic masculinity across time and place (postwar France, Sweden and the contemporary U.S.). Its point of departure is a play by Swedish writer Stig Dagerman set in postwar France, when French manhood had been badly bruised by the Nazi occupation, and was being restored through false narratives and myth-making about French courage.
