HAPPY is a documentary directed, written, and co-produced by my friends, Academy Award nominated film-makers Roko Belic and Adrian Belic.  It explores human happiness through all walks of life, in 14 different countries. The film explores those who have found real joy, despite lacking material security or disfiguring tragedies. Interviewed are worlds top neuroscientists and psychologists. Revealed is that what is emulated in media does not provide deep contentment. All should see HAPPY- Highly recommend this film!
