DUKE @ FRIGHTFEST – UK PREMIERE – One of the breakout titles of the year after premiering at Slamdance, ‘HAPPY FACE’ is there to remind you that sometimes real horrors lie much closer than we ever thought about.
The story of a handsome teenager who deforms his face and attends a support group for disfigured people. and in turn, changes all their lives…for good and bad…HAPPY FACE is the kind of film that makes you leave the cinema reeling – funny, dark, ugly, brilliant and frightening in all the right ways, this story will shake you to your core. Based on autobiographical events, HAPPY FACE throws down the gauntlet to challenge the way we view the world & each other and in the process transforms the concept of a genre film – do no miss the UK Premiere of this standout title that has been wowing audiences across the festival circuit and what the critics have called ‘haunting’ and disquieting’.
An ode to outsiders, to people who left excluded and those of us who feel different to the rest of the world, HAPPY FACE is a film that will appeal to even the most ardent of genre fans.
