Academy award nominated director, Roko Belic, has been working for four years on the documentary HAPPY. The film explores all walks of life and finding unique answers to the question, “What makes you happy?”

Belic and his team traveled to over fourteen countries to talk to many individuals. Throughout the film, we see individuals who’ve endured all areas of the ‘feelings’ spectrum: extreme joy, pain, tragedy, frustration. Through it all, happiness exists in mysterious and unexpectful ways.

“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.”*

The film is already being talked about with buzzing magazines including Paste and Wall Street Journal entertainment blogs.

It is currently in it’s last legs and in need of our help! For anyone who wants to learn more about the project and if they’d like to donate, please find contact information here.
