Buttonwood Launches Film Series with "HAPPY", Thursday Night

“Happy” is offered freely to all as a film sponsored by Spiritual Cinema Circle – “The Heart and Soul of Cinema”. This 76 minute independent film is a documentary about the art and science of happiness. It travels from India to Bhutan, Denmark, and Okinawa, Japan in search of some of the happiest people in the world. It combines real life stories of people from around the world and powerful interviews with the leading scientists in happiness research.
Happy from Spiritual Cinema Circle monthly DVD club

Narrated by Marci Shimoff. Directed by Roko Belic. Produced by Eiji Han Shimizu, Frances Reid, Roko Belic & Tom Shadyac.

"I think this is the perfect film to lead off our new series. I’m so excited and grateful to be able to share it with everyone. This riveting and upbeat film is filled with interesting facts and perspectives. It opens the mind to what’s important in life and offers inspiration for ways to make a better life for ourselves. I truly believe what you look at – what you focus on long enough -  is what you’ll manifest. We are powerful creators, yet too often we give our power away. Who doesn’t want happiness? This film shows how to achieve it and why happiness is so important in our lives." Anne-Marie Cannata

The Buttonwood Tree's Film Series will continue through the winter months and will contain films that are educational, enlightening, empowering, entertaining and inspirational.
Next films: Nov 7th and Dec 5th for a showing of another documentary -  on GMOs  – called "Genetic Roulette". (This one is not happy, but is educational and can open your eyes to what we're eating.)

Thanks to the Community Foundation of Middlesex County for making our film series possible by supplying our projector, and to O'Rourke's Diner, Harris Itkins and John DeBoer for other components.    Refreshments are available.   7 pm,  Free.
