Academy Award® nominated director Roko Belic has spent the last 5 years filming and working on a new feature-length documentary called Happy that takes us on a trip around the globe — visiting 5 continents and 14 countries — exploring the power and mystery of happiness and searching for “a deeper understanding of why and how we can pursue more fulfilling, healthier and happier lives.”
HAPPY takes us on a journey from the swamps of Louisiana to the slums of Kolkata in search of what really makes people happy. Combining real life stories of people from around the world and powerful interviews with the leading scientists in happiness research, HAPPY explores the secrets behind our most valued emotion.
Happy is screening with showings last month in Spokane, WA, and is now playing this month in San Francisco, CA. Keep an eye out for it playing in a theater near you. You can also host your own screening or request that a specific theater schedule some dates.
We hope that the lessons learned through the film can not only help individuals find more peace and contentment in their own lives, but that the shift toward happiness will lead us to be more compassionate, less destructive and better citizens of the world.
