Screening of Finding Hygge | Happiness Film Festival 2019

Director: Rocky Walls
2018 | Documentary | Denmark | 90 mins | English | PG13 (Some coarse language)

This film is co-presented with Airbnb.

Hygge has exploded in popularity amidst growing division and distrust around the world, but the Danish word and its definition are more complicated than it seems. For those who seek happiness, this exploratory documentary travels around the globe to discover the true meaning of hygge and how to find it.

Denmark has been ranked top three in happiness since the first issue of the World Happiness Report in 2012. The post-screening dialogue explores Hygge - an idea that is so central to what it means to be happy in Denmark. The dialogue also explores if the idea of Hygge can be applicable to our Singapore context.
