Free Film Screening: Happy

Does money bring happiness? 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?

Roko Belic, director of the Academy Award® nominated “Genghis Blues” now brings us Happy, an award-winning documentary that sets out to answer these questions and more. Taking us from the bayous of Louisiana to the deserts of Namibia, from the beaches of Brazil to the villages of Okinawa, explores the secrets behind our most valued emotion and explores why the U.S. ranks 23rd of happiest countries.

Join us for a post-film Q&A with Arizona State University Sustainability Scientist Scott Cloutier, who leads the Sustainable Neighborhoods for Happiness™ project -- a multi-year research, teaching and applied sustainability solutions initiative to improve neighborhood well-being and the happiness of residents.
