Exciting News! Big Voice Pictures has partnered with 1in6, Inc., a nonprofit organization that offers online support and resources for the estimated 18 million American men who suffer as a result of unwanted or abusive sexual experiences in childhood, to produce Spanish subtitles for Boys and Men Healing from male child sexual abuse. Additionally, the partnership included adding English subtitles to the film, now also making it accessible to people who are deaf and hard-of-hearing. These tools will greatly enhance the potential for much-needed outreach within these affected groups.

Los Niños y los Hombres Sanándose (DVD)
Quote from 1in6.org:
This powerful and moving documentary tells the stories of three courageous men, two white and one African American, who have found healing for themselves and helped many others (Asian American, Latino and gay men are also featured). It is an insightful, wise and compassionate film that perfectly balances storytelling and reflection on issues affecting all men sexually abused as boys, including struggles with intimacy and the cycle of violence. Boys and Men Healing brings not only understanding, but great hope and inspiration, to men still struggling with the effects of sexual abuse, to those who care about them, and to anyone open to learning more about this issue. It truly has the potential to transform individuals, families and societies. — Quote from 1in6.org
Este poderoso y conmovedor documental relata las historias de tres hombres valientes, dos blancos y un afroamericano, quienes se han sanado y han ayudado a muchos otros hombres (además aparecen hombres asiáticos americanos, latinos y gay). Es una película intuitiva, sabia y compasiva que balancea perfectamente la narración de historias personales con la reflexión sobre asuntos que afectan a todos los hombres que fueron abusados sexualmente durante su niñez, entre ellos las luchas con la intimidad y el ciclo de violencia.
Subtítulos en español incluidos en las opciones del menú.* Men Healing no solamente trae un entendimiento, sino también una gran esperanza e inspiración para los hombres que luchan con los efectos del abuso sexual, y para quienes se preocupan por ellos, así como para cualquier persona que busca aprender más sobre este tema. La película tiene un verdadero potencial para transformar individuos, familias y sociedades.
