Trailer of the Day: Happy Sad Man

Happy Sad Man, a charming and uplifting insight into the lives of five very different Australian men, will premiere across Australia from October 31.

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.
