Marina Magorin Attempts to Break Down the "Man Box"

March 5, 2024

"The term ‘The Man Box’ refers to a rigid set of expectations, perceptions, and actions that are considered “manly”, imposed on men by society, and by none more so than men themselves.

Set against typically hyper-masculine environments such as cars, the office, and the gym, protagonists respond to arising conflict by cuddling, tickling, giggling, and generally goofing around; behaviours that would be considered firmly outside of the Man Box."

Golden LA’s Martina Magorin directs “Oh Boys,” a short film that challenges toxic gender norms of aggression and machismo with some hilarious, tender, touchy-feely tomfoolery. Head to shots to view the trailer and learn more!
