Join us for the screening and meet documentary filmmaker Soraya Umewaka for the screening of her documentary film “I am Happy.”

The screening will be followed by Q&A and capoeira performance .

Synopsis: In the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, graffiti artists make a living through art rather than crime; samba dancers rehearse for hours in order to have a better life; in-house-maids toil away during the week in wealthy homes of the city’s south side; and military police combat favela crime with minimal resources. Despite having to face social and economic problems, these individuals persevere by creating their own brand of happiness – a survival tool that is closely intertwined with their psychological wellbeing. What is their perception of happiness?
Is happiness a state of mind or a fleeting moment in time?

This documentary has premiered at international film festivals and will tour around the world with National Geographic this year.
