The Cambridge University Well-Being Institute is delighted to make two announcements.

Screening of ‘HAPPY’ at the Arts PictureHouse

On Friday 18th May at 6.30pm, there will be another chance to see the film HAPPY, which was screened by the WBI in November last year. This time the film is being screened by the Arts Picturehouse as part of the 2012 UK Green Film Festival. HAPPY, the latest award-winning film from Academy Award-nominated director Roko Belic, takes us on a journey from the swamps of Louisiana to the slums of Kolkata in search of what really makes people happy. Combining real-life stories of people from around the world and powerful interviews with the leading scientists in happiness research, HAPPY explores the secrets behind our most valued emotion.

After the film, Cambridge Carbon Footprint and the Arts Picturehouse will welcome panellists Felicia Huppert, Director of the Well-Being Institute at the University of Cambridge, Candice Howarth, Research Fellow at the Global Sustainability Institute at Anglia Ruskin University, and Ben Irvine, editor of Cycle Lifestyle Magazine. They will give their thoughts on the film, followed by questions from the audience.

Tickets and more information are available through the Arts Picturehouse website.
