The World Premier of Pursuing Happiness takes place on Friday April 24th!

The World Premier of Pursuing Happiness takes place on Friday April 24th!

Americans spend upwards of $10 Billion every year seeking Happiness, which doesn’t even include the money we spend on stuff we think will make us happy or the billions spent on anti-depressants.

What is the power behind happy? Why has it become a leading concern of the 21st century?

We sought to find out.

Pursuing Happiness is our diary of interviews with America’s happiest people. In order to find an answer to one simple question: what does happiness mean to Americans today?, we lived with hundreds of Americans, all of whom are perceived by others as the happiest person they know.

What can they tell us? What lessons can we learn about our own happiness? What are the common threads of the happiest people in America?

We invite you to see what Happiness looks like among real people living everyday lives: from hard-scrabble existences to the terminally ill, from wealthy to those who’ve experienced great loss, come see for yourself. Our World Premier date coincides with the United Nations’ publication of the 3rd Annual World Happiness Report.

After each screening we will be in attendance for a Q&A and are happy to discuss our work and findings in more depth with you.

World Premier:
Friday, April 24th at 8pm @ The Regency South Coast Village

2nd Showing: Tuesday, April 28th at 1:30pm @ Island Cinema
