    Event description

    Join Satellite Foundation for a special screening of the documentary, Happy Sad Man, by Genevieve Bailey, to acknowledge and celebrate World Mental Health Day on 9 October. 

    Most of us have people in our lives who identify as male - from fathers, grandfathers, husbands and partners, brothers, uncles, and siblings, to friends, colleagues and neighbours. While there are many outwardly obvious ways of "being male", the internal, emotional lives of men are often hidden. Happy Sad Man, a documentary by Genevieve Bailey, aims to expose the vulnerabilities hidden within the internal lives of men. The film journeys alongside five Australian men as they navigate their own mental health challenges and the ripple effect that these have on all those they live with and are surrounded by. Their struggles with the expectations and stereotypes of masculinity and of what it means to be "male" are given a voice, alongside their hopes, anxieties, joy, and darkness.

    The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Genevieve Bailey where we invite young people to join in our conversations about:

    - mental health challenges and the complex emotional landscapes of men

    - the ripple effect of mental health challenges and how young people may experience those challenges with and while often supporting the men in their own life

      We encourage everyone to invite the men and other people in their lives to come and enjoy the film with you and join in the Q&A afterwards.

      Individual tickets: $15
      Family of four: $50
