Happy Sad Man

EVENT: Sunday July 25, 3.30pm. Join filmmaker Genevieve Bailey when she screens and discusses her documentary on the stigma surrounding mental health among Australian men, along with special guests.

HAPPY SAD MAN is a charming and uplifting insight into the lives of five very different Australian men.

Following her smash hit I AM ELEVEN, Australian filmmaker Genevieve Bailey was inspired to find more diverse and positive portrayals of men exploring their emotional selves. We journey from Bondi Beach to the outback; we laugh and cry alongside a war photographer traversing global conflict zones, we visit a farmer and outreach worker from rural Victoria, a musical nomad and a sensitive dog-loving artist. Each portrait is an intimate and heartwarming look into vulnerability, friendship and compassion.

HAPPY SAD MAN gives unforgettable voice to the complex emotional landscapes we can all traverse. Touching, funny and tender, this must-see documentary is set to shine a light on and change the dialogue around masculinity and mental health today. Exploring hopes, anxieties, joy and darkness the raw vulnerability of these stories will inspire you to hold some of the men in your own life that bit closer.

Event rescheduled from Sunday June 13 due to Victoian lockdown. Thanks for your understanding.
