Does money make you happy? Kids and family? Your work? Do you live in a world that values and promotes happiness and well-being? Are we in the midst of a happiness revolution? Roko Belic, multi award-winning director of the Oscar-nominated Genghis Blues now brings us HAPPY, a film that sets out to answer these questions and more, taking us to over 14 countries, from the bayou of Louisiana to the desert of Namibia, from the beaches of Brazil to the villages of Okinawa. From a scientist scanning brains in his lab to a rickshaw puller in the streets of Kolkata, we learn amazing truths about happiness. The film actually features Cohousing in Denmark, the Dalai Lama, and many more stories that reveal the true power of community. East Bay Cohousing organizers/Cohousing Coaches Raines and Betsy are very pleased to host Director/Producer Roko Belic and crew for a sneak preview of HAPPY, in Downtown Berkeley. Doors open at 6:30 pm; film by 7 (70 minutes), followed by discussion. The event is now totally sold out and we can't fit anyone else. Light local refreshments and drinks available for sale. Plus incredible T-shirts. Become a new EBCOHO (1-year) supporting member and we'll treat you to pre-event dinner at Gather Restaurant downstairs with the filmmakers (5pm). ($30 for current supporting members). Plus we'll save the best seats for all EBCOHO Supporting Members who RSVP. We will NOT be doing a late show, putting one together was hard enough. We're exhausted but we're happy!
