The Happy Film
Do you have an impact on your personal happiness? Most of us have dealt with career goals, relationships, and our own happiness. But how many of us have really taken the time to explore what makes us happy? Is it possible to design happiness? Austrian designer Stefan Sagmeister did well. He lives in his dream city of New York and very successfully designs album covers for the Rolling Stones, Jay-Z and the Talking Heads. But in his mind, the question haunts him whether that's really all there is to it. He decides to make a design project out of himself. Can he redesign his personality to become a better person? Can he learn to be happy through practice? But his life creeps into the self-experiment and upsets everything: the web of art, sex, love and death seems impenetrable. His self-design and painful experiences lead him on a journey that brings him closer to himself than ever planned.
