America consistently ranks low on the United Nation's World Happiness Report. In Pursuing Happiness, two filmmakers set out to discover what can be done by asking their Kickstarter supporters, "Who is the happiest person you know?" Based on those referrals, they traveled the country, showing up at complete strangers homes with their cameras rolling. They also gathered the academic and spiritual wisdom from experts in psychology, neuroscience, philosophy and business, juxtaposing the head and heart connection to create many a-ha moments. This film will put a skip in your step on your way home!
A Q&A with director Adam Shell follows.
