“The greatest lesson I learned from my experiences making this film is that my pursuit of happiness is not about me. It’s about us…” 

                                                             
Award-winning director, Roko Belic

 

 

How can we bring more happiness into our daily lives and why is that so important, especially today?

This 75-minute documentary about the pursuit of happiness shows how the most unlikely people may actually be the happiest of all.

We’ll also show a brief interview with Executive Director, Tom Shadyak, and a special short feature on living at the Findhorn Community in Scotland.

Our afternoon screening will be followed by audience intermingling and snacks… Please join us, and bring a friend!
