18-Jul-2013 Films for change: Happy

Thursday 18 July 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Well of course, being Happy referred to the film I saw after work. I quite like work but I wouldn’t really say it’s a Happy place!

I went to see the Happy movie at Govinda’s in Kings Cross as part of the Films for Change meetup group.

Does money make you happy? Kids and family? Your work? Do you live in a world that values and promotes happiness and well-being? Are we in the midst of a happiness revolution? HAPPY, the latest award-winning film from Academy Award® nominated director, Roko Belic (Genghis Blues) and Executive Producer, Tom Shadyac (Nutty Professor, Bruce Almighty, I AM), 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 features insights from experts in the field of positive psychology including Ed Diener, Sonja Lyubomirsky, Richard Davidson, Daniel Gilbert, NicMarks, Gregory Berns, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, P. Read Montague, and Tim Kasser and is narrated by Marci Shimoff, best selling author of ‘Happy for No Reason’ and ‘Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul’.

For a change Dawn came and saw it with me, which was great. I would prefer she came to all of the films, but there is only so much spare time we each have.

We both enjoyed the film and the food afterwards and enjoyed chatting with the other people that saw it.

We were home by about 10pm.
