HAPPY SAD MAN is a feature length documentary, which explores the mental health journeys of five very different Australian men with care, honesty, vulnerability and compassion.

MEET

GENEVIEVE BAILEY
FILMMAKER

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.

Genevieve will be joining the online Q&A panel and will give insight into the inspiration behind HAPPY SAD MAN, her experiences and lessons learned during the making of the film, and the importance of conversation.

“I believe that when mental health, men’s health and problematic stereotypes around masculinity are not spoken about openly not only do our men suffer but so do the women, children and non-binary people in their lives.

The stigma has been shifting over the last few years but there is still a long way to go. I am proud to be part of these conversations. The time is now.”

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ONLINE!
