Queue the screen, pop on your earphones, and let's go for a ride because we finally made it!
Your were most dearly missed on Saturday, 27 June 2015, when Route 2 Happiness was screened to a full house. You were the first who encouraged us to begin this project and (with silent patience!) helped us to complete it.
The event was particularly interesting because Oliver Burkeman, author of The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking, moderated a Q&A. We realized how some of the conclusions of our very anecdotal research, such as the importance of difficulties in the path towards happiness, have a stronger backing by scientific research than we had thought.
Now we share the fruits of this venture. The film will be sent to you in a separate email with a password since it will remain private while being submitted to some festivals. Like this, we hope to find a wider audience to share what you have made possible. Thanks again.

It has been a long journey, three years to be precise! After a winding path of rewriting, re-editing and rehashing, the short documentary Route 2 Happiness will be screened publicly in Brooklyn on 27 June.
This would not have happened without you, who trusted two recent graduates to undertake this adventure. We have been supported by some generous and talented collaborators who gave their time to help make this happen.
Thanks again for being wind in our sails. You will soon receive the rest of the committed rewards, including the link to the documentary and other perks.
We hope you can join us for the premiere. If not, we will celebrate it with you, wherever you are, the next time we meet up. Thanks again.

on Saturday, 27 June @ 7:30-8:30pm

Q&A moderated by Oliver Burkeman, author of The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking
with backyard drinks/bachata afterwards around the corner (107 S 3rd Street)
Just when you almost forgot us, we are back!
During the incommunicado hiatus, we have worked to put the near final touches on this project, slicing and dicing to the finish. After years of (re)editing, we have just recorded the narration and shared a final cut with our sound editor and music composer. We are extremely excited to share the outcome of all this work very soon. The short documentary should be released, in May...this year! More to come on the details in the next month.
Thank you for all your patience and silent faith.
Michael & Victor

Ahora que casi ya os habíais olvidado de nosotros, estamos de vuelta!
En el tiempo en el que no nos hemos comunicado hemos estado trabajando duro para darle los toques final a este proyecto. Tras años editando y reeditando, hemos grabado ya la narración y la versión final está ya en manos del editor de sonido y el compositor de la banda sonora original. Tenemos muchas ganas de compartir con todos el fruto de todo este trabajo. El corto documental será estrenado en Mayo... de este año! Os daremos más detalles conforme nos vayamos acercando a la fecha final el mes que viene.
Muchas gracias a todos por vuestra paciencia y vuestro apoyo en este camino. Michael y Victor
