Presentation Video of How Movies Teach Manhood by Colin Stokes at TED

Lecture video description from TED: When Colin Stokes’ 3-year-old son caught a glimpse of Star Wars, he was instantly obsessed. But what messages did he absorb from the sci-fi classic? Stokes asks for more movies that send positive messages to boys: that cooperation is heroic, and respecting women is as manly as defeating the villain. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

The director of communications for the non-profit Citizen Schools, Colin Stokes thinks deeply about the media he shares with his two young children.
