The Man Who Laughs

Synopsis

Based on the classic best-selling book from Victor Hugo, the man who brought Les Miserables to the world; The Man Who Laughs is the story of two young orphans: Gwynplaine, a young boy who has been facially disfigured with a scar which makes him look like he’s constantly smiling, and Dea, a young blind girl. Many years later, when both are grown, the adoptive family travel together and put on a show where Gwynplaine has become a star.

When father and son discover they are competing for the affections of the same woman, old wounds are reopened over the death of Fin’s mother.

Waru

For Australian sessions, head to: au.demand.film/waru/

A sisterhood of 8 Maori female directors bravely share their insights into the complexity of child abuse, in a sequence of eight short films that seamlessly become one.

At the centre of their stories is Waru, a boy killed at the hands of a caregiver. His tangi, set on a small rural marae, is the centrepiece of the film, but there is an underlying disturbance of heavy themes touching on culture, custom and shame.
