The Declaration of Independence famously grants us the right to pursue happiness. And Americans spend great amounts of time and energy chasing it. But for many people, we're not even sure what it is we're chasing. And so, inspired and intrigued by this "unalienable" right, documentary filmmaker Andrew Shapter set out on a cinematic road trip to explore the myths and the truths of the "pursuit of Happiness" in America. Shapter, Director of the critically acclaimed documentary Before The Music Dies, traveled coast-to-coast, speaking with all sorts of Americans. And the film provides an unequaled view into the hearts and minds of spiritual leaders like the Dalai Lama, philanthropists, authors, scholars, and everyday people, along with a few artists like John Mellencamp and Willie Nelson. So come along as together we explore common ground and navigate the road to happiness! Written by
Very inspiring take of what the "pusuit of happiness" should mean.
I found this movie by accident. A friend posted it on facebook and I spontaneously bought it.
This is a diamond in the rough. A rare timeless gem that will grow more over time (I'm sure).
The film looks directly at the phrase "the pursuit of happiness," all kinds of people ponder it's meaning...philanthropists, scholars, the occasional celebrity like John Mellencamp and Willie Nelson, spiritual leader such as the Dalai Lama , and a variety pack of Americans rich and poor, what their definition of happiness was.
No the answers were not as I expected. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. To be more specific, I was inspired I guess you could even say that "Happiness Is" serves as a beacon of sorts...pointing in the right direction. The path of Happiness Is clear...
See for yourself (I won't spoil it for you)
