Happiness (below) is a short film made by Steve Cutts. It’s a masterpiece.
We live in a society where the focus on well being and mindfulness is in the ascendant. It’s the natural corollary to lives lived in the shadow of an exploitative system – where what we buy is, we are told, what defines us. Th film looks at the myths we are sold – about the true path to happiness being just ‘x’ or ‘y’ and hang the consequences. It asks questions.
Perhaps the true path to happiness doesn’t lie in unrestrained consumption, but rather in developing yourself and your own resilience?

Part of the ‘People of Pimlico’ project, funded by Bloomberg as part of their commitment to the Royal Court Theatre’s outreach activity, this film takes in the voices and viewpoints of members of the community living in Pimlico and mixes them with actors and performers from the Royal Court. The results are fascinating – and at times the juxtapositions are surreal.
Food for thought.
