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. Journeying from Bondi Beach to the outback; laugh and cry alongside a war photographer traversing global conflict zones, 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 everyone can traverse. Touching, funny and tender, this documentary is set to shine a light on and change the dialogue around masculinity and mental health today.
Happy Sad Man is in cinemas from October 31.
