Join me Monday, June 10th at 6 p.m. Pacific/9 Eastern on Radio Enso. My guest will be documentary filmmaker Maja Bugge, the Director & Producer of the new film ABOUT MEN which captures a group of men exploring their vulnerable selves through a men’s group in North Idaho. We’ll also be joined by Owen Marcus, who founded the group featured in the film. 
About: Eight men sit in a circle every Wednesday night, and fall and catch each other as challenges are faced. The film portrays Chris, Robert, Wayne and Thomas who are on their individual journeys toward realizing their purposes in life. Rookie Chris frees himself from the burden of his estranged father, while the group’s oldest member, Robert, reaches for courage to embrace his relationship to his girlfriend. For Wayne and Thomas, the group is the ultimate support, as Wayne faces the loss of his business and Thomas faces the loss of his father.
About Maja Bugge: ABOUT MEN is Maja’s first documentary film production. Facilitating people’s stories she builds up trust with her subjects and allows for the subjects themselves to reflect upon their own story. 
Maja Bugge was born in a commune in 1985 just outside of Copenhagen and holds a BA in Communications and Cultural Encounters from Roskilde University. In 2012 she graduated from The New School in NYC with an MA in Media Studies. Her multifaceted previous work experience ranging from public school teaching to political communications to horse massage therapy has inspired her to explore human stories that impact her and the audience’s view of themselves.
