Nothing’s ‘normal’ any more. For all of us, what’s happening now can, to put it plainly, be a real headf*ck.
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?
