Sensitive Men Rising
The FIRST EVER documentary on
SENSORY PROCESSING SENSITIVITY in MEN
Inspired by the Best-Selling Author Elaine Aron and the Award-Winning Director Will Harper
The world is experiencing dramatic events before all of our eyes. Now, the Foundation for the Study of Highly Sensitive Persons (HSP) has embarked upon an unprecedented calling. A new documentary film, Sensitive Men Rising (SMR), is turning its lens to the billion men who have largely been hidden in the shadows. Thanks to the breakthrough that we now know as “sensory processing sensitivity” (SPS) —popularly known as “high sensitivity“— we know men can play a pivotal role in changing the face and times of the doldrums of masculinity.
This groundbreaking innate trait — sensory processing sensitivity — is present in 20-30% of the population. It was discovered by international best-selling author and researcher of the Highly Sensitive Person, Elaine Aron, Ph.D..
Dr. Aron made dramatic advancements in public awareness through the pioneering film Sensitive-The Untold Story. Featuring Alanis Morissette, the film furthered our global understanding of highly sensitive people (or HSPs). You! our dedicated followers and supporters are the ones who made it possible for Sensitive-The Untold Story to become a global achievement.
NOW! We invite you to join us on this quest to make this innovative, necessary and life-changing NEW film a reality. The film, Sensitive Men Rising, is a long overdue socially significant film that invites all of us on an emotional, educational, and life-enlightening passage. It asks us ALL to deepen our understanding of sensory processing sensitivity in men, and how it intersects with traditional and modern-day masculinity.
Our responsibility is CLEAR and PRESENT! Let’s MAKE OUR WORLD a better place.
Action Movie Star: Luke Goss
The Exemplary Sensitive Man
Actor, Artist, Author, Director, Former U.K. Pop Star
Born and raised in the U.K., Luke Goss grew up facing what many sensitive men encountered. He describes some of his younger years as tumultuous, tormented, and troubled.
Not knowing about his innate trait (SPS), he and his twin brother Matt charged through life, creating the successful 1980’s UK boys band BROS. They chartered 13 hit singles and sold 17 million albums. In the ’90s, I Owe You Nothing was a top 10 bestseller. He also began to appear in stage musicals including Grease and What a Feeling! Following the Award-winning BBC documentary, After the Screaming Stops, a film about the discord between him and his twin brother Matt, Luke moved to Hollywood and appeared in over 51 films most notable by Hollywood Box Office standards: Hellboy II, Blade II, Death Race, and Hitman.
His latest chapter in life reflects his feelings through his filmmaking, songwriting, and contemporary fine art expression, as well as empowering his sensitive proclivities.
