The Smell Of Burning Ants

USA, 1994
Length: 21'
Director: Jay Rosenblatt

The Smell of Burning Ants is a haunting documentary on the pains of growing up male. It explores the inner and outer cruelties that boys perpetrate and endure and illustrates how they are socialized by fear, power and shame. The film provokes the viewer to reflect on how our society can deprive boys of wholeness by alienating them from their femenine side.
