Following her smash hit documentary ‘I AM ELEVEN’, Australian filmmaker Genevieve Bailey was driven to find what’s missing from the conversation about men today.
With the superficial stereotypes and worst examples in the media not matching up with the men she has known in her own life, Bailey presents an intensely intimate look in to vulnerability and compassion through her relationships with five very different men. We journey from Bondi Beach to the outback, laughing and crying with a war photographer traversing the globe to a country farmer, musical nomad and a dog loving artist.
Taking in their hopes, anxieties, joy and darkness – HAPPY SAD MAN gives unforgettable voice to the complex emotional landscapes of modern masculinity and mental health. Tough, tender and touching, this portrait shines a memorable light on a complex and urgent topic that’s been little talked about for far too long.
