The director of Happy Sad Man, Genevieve Bailey and some of the cast from the film, will tour Australia for Q&A screenings around the country. The film is a charming and uplifting insight into the lives of five very different Australian men and will open in cinemas from October 31, with a staggered release across Australia throughout November.

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.
