We wanted to release a film which de-stigmatises mental health amongst young men, motivated by the fact that suicide is the biggest killer of this demographic in the UK. We wanted to create a raw and hard-hitting piece of content. The film was screened at Stories of Being Festival on Mental Health Awareness Week, and was launched on Dazed & Confused.
Men Don’t Cry successfully presents an authentic voice and tackles the taboos surrounding men, expectation and emotional trauma head-on. These are not simply passion projects but an expression of our belief in the power of film to inspire change.
