We watched this movie recently with a small group of youth, starting at age 10. It’s a new documentary, simply called Happy, that explores some of the research about happiness in an accessible and interesting way. The documentary takes the audience from Japan, where long work hours have had a terrible impact, to Denmark, exploring the positive impact of neighbors helping neighbors. About an hour in length, it’s a great way to get into a discussion about what makes us happy – family, friends, self-reflections – and what doesn’t – materialism and too much focus on our own ambitions. Although it’s reference to religion is fleeting, it is easy to link to the message of the gospel, and can prompt a great discussion.
