I’m Too Happy

Selected by artist Rachel Maclean and curator Bren O’Callaghan, our season of films expands upon themes within the artist’s rainbow-dipped yet always unsettling works that address childhood, happiness and innocence as a context, state or quality ripe for commodification and exploitation.

Combining fairytale with horror, animation with CGI, Disney princesses with alcoholic excess, we offer a deep, cinematic draft from a well in which the water may taste of strawberries, but blisters soon bubble upon the lips.
