Encounter Two | ‘The Lost Child’ | Film

The work explores masculinity; what it means to be a man in today’s society and why men are still discouraged from showing emotions. 

If man is only a machine, what happens when that machine breaks down?

‘What is masculinity if not taking the weight / of a boy and straining it from oneself?’ Andrew McMillan
