7/26 Boys State: One-Night Only, Pre-Release, Virtual Screening

Aspen Film and the Aspen Institute Arts Program’s Eisner/Lauder New Views Documentaries and Dialogue Series, in conjunction with Apple Original Films and A24, present the sensational 2020 Sundance Grand Jury prize-winning documentary BOYS STATE – streaming for one-night only.

To access a stream to BOYS STATE, viewers can visit AspenFilm.org. Each virtual ticket will be $20; the film is available one night only at 6:00pm MT/8:00pm ET/5:00pm PT on Sunday, July 26. Immediately following the film will be a panel discussion featuring filmmakers Amanda McBaine & Jesse Moss, along with film subjects Steven Garza and Ben Feinstein, and moderated by Aspen Institute Executive Vice President Elliot Gerson.

BOYS STATE takes you on a wildly entertaining and continually revealing immersion into a week-long annual program in which a thousand Texas high school seniors gather for an elaborate mock exercise: building their own state government. Filmmakers Jesse Moss and Amanda McBaine closely track the escalating tensions that arise within a particularly riveting gubernatorial race, training their cameras on unforgettable teenagers like Ben, a Reagan-loving arch-conservative who brims with confidence despite personal setbacks, and Steven, a progressive-minded child of Mexican immigrants who stands by his convictions amidst the sea of red. In the process, they have created a complex portrait of contemporary American masculinity, as well as a microcosm of our often dispiriting national political divisions that nevertheless manages to plant seeds of hope.

Have you ever felt an intense emotion but struggled to come up with a way to put your feelings into words? Perhaps you’re going through a difficult breakup and are having trouble processing the mixture of anger, grief, sadness, and other emotions you are experiencing. Some may be impossible to even identify. Or maybe you’re excited about the possibility of something new — a promotion, for example — but are experiencing something else in addition to the excitement — something you can’t quite articulate out loud. You’re not alone. Describing emotions is a complex and often extremely challenging — not to mention sometimes undesirable — task that leaves many people overwhelmed and even more confused than the feelings themselves. However, this ability is an important one to have in developing emotional intelligence. People can use the wheel to identify their emotions and come to terms with how they are feeling, make informed decisions, seek resolution, gain closure, and, ultimately, become more self-aware and self-compassionate.#selfawareness #love #life #selfawareness #personalgrowth #spiritualgrowth #spiritualawakening #higherconsciousness #higherawakening #highervibes #spiritualjourney #highervibrations #awakenings #affirmations #affirmation #wisewordstoliveby #wisewordsoftheday #dailyaffirmations #affirmationoftheday #manifestation ...
