Filmmaker Adam Shell discusses Pursuing Happiness, his inspiring new documentary. What is the secret to actually finding happiness? The film follows Shell and producer Nicholas Kraft across the country where they talk to remarkable people who radiate genuine happiness. Every story shows a different struggle and a different triumph as artists, public servants, parents, and dreamers show the world what makes them happy – and how that happiness has a remarkable impact on the people and their communities. Featuring testimony from experts in the field of mindfulness, psychology, art, sociology, religion, and cultural studies, Pursuing Happiness brought Shell into contact with the worldwide happiness movement. After successful screenings at several film festivals (which lead to an appearance for Shell at the United Nations and on The Today Show), the film is scheduled to open in select theatres on March 20, designated as International Happiness Day, and will be released on demand and streaming services throughout 2016. Shell and Kraft also worked together on two previous documentaries, Put the Camera on Me and Finding Kraftland.
