Past Forward: Toxische Männlichkeit hat Geschichte

Power, muscles and misogyny

Past Forward reporter Yousuf grew up with rap music and footballer friends. He is no stranger to "masculine" behavior. He keeps asking himself from his own motivation: Am I already toxically masculine? Am I harming myself and others by adopting my parents' traditional values?

The documentary dares to look back in history and finds frightening parallels today. Toxic masculinity characterizes the everyday life of everyone in Germany then and now, whether woman or man. Youssuf searches for solutions for the future and finds answers in the past.
