The Happy FilmStefan Sagmeister, Ben Nabors, Hillman Curtis

Everyone is always looking for happiness. But is it possible to improve your own happiness? Renowned graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister takes up the challenge and attempts to be happy by means of a number of experiments often cited in popular psychology. Do meditation, therapy or medication make people happier? The Happy Film will – at least for an hour and a half.

Stefan Sagmeister is not unhappy. He is a well-known and very successful graphic designer, who has the privilege of working with some of the biggest artists in the world. Still, he thinks he can be even happier. But can he control that? He examines whether it is possible to improve your own happiness by three popular psychological experiments: therapy, meditation or medication. Of course everything does not always go as planned. But whatever happens, Stefan Sagmeister is not afraid to speak very openly about important things in his life.
After the screening of Friday March 24th at DOCVILLE² activity follows, Lezing over Geluk door Leo Bormans (lecture about "happiness") , Leo Bormans is writer of the international bestseller, The World Book of Happiness. The lecture will be in Dutch
