The Happy Film
"The Happy Film" by Stefan Sagmeister was featured at the Tribeca Film festival April 16 to the 22nd.
Stefan Sagmeister takes on the daunting project of changing his personality by trying to figure out the causes of happiness. On the advice of a trusted psychologist, Stefan experiments with three different approaches: meditation, therapy, and drugs.
The Happy Film follows his pursuit, and all that he encounters along the way: joy, ecstasy, heartbreak, change, love, and death. He accents his quest with a whimsical panoply of graphics, charts, and proverbs that illustrate his curious and adventurous spirit. The Happy Film is not guaranteed to make you happier, but his journey will surely move you to reexamine your own pursuit of happiness.
