“Bro” – a documentary on masculinity & the Brony fandom
A short film by Leah Jean
In association with Alto & Pastel Productions
“Bro” is a documentary that explores the roles of masculinity and effects of gender stereotypes on society. Following the premiere of the series “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic”, males all over the world created a fandom that no one ever expected. This counterculture gained attention nationwide, and continues to raise awareness of misandry related issues.
