Animist Tallinn. Competition Programme 2: To Be a Boy

Masculinity is viewed as something solid, infallible, and eternal. But how do men cope with such expectations that society has for them? Do they let the world harden their flesh until they turn into stone, or do they open themselves up to something softer, shrug that burden off, and do some laundry instead?
