Event Description

Filmmakers Adam Shell and Nicholas Kraft spent two years crossing the country in search of America's happiest people. It's no wonder they found themselves in the courtyard of Randyland in search of Randy Gilson - Pittsburgh's energetic, inspiring pop-artist and philosophical guru.

Join Randy himself, and director Adam Shell, for a screening of Pursuing Happiness, a documentary featuring one of our favorite Northside neighbors.  

All ticket sales and donations benefit the ongoing maintenance and artisitic pursuits of Randyland. Please consider making an additional donation on top of your ticket purchase.


About the film:

Happiness.  It is one of our greatest desires.  But what is happiness in the first place? How exactly do we achieve it? And when we do, how do we hold on to it.  In a country that grants its citizens the right to pursue happiness, surprisingly America is not among the happiest countries in the world.  Why is happiness so illusive?  What are we doing wrong?

Join the journey and discover the secrets to living a truly happy life as two film-makers travel the country in search of the happiest people in America.  Be ready to laugh and cry as they uncover real-life heartfelt stories from the most compelling characters. A young woman battling stage 4 colon cancer, a single dad who lost both of his arms, an impoverished painter single-handedly revitalizing his condemned neighborhood, and two vigilante artists fighting to save their bankrupt city.

These are among the happiest people in America.

Pursuing Happiness compares and contrasts these amazing stories with findings and teachings of some of the leading researchers on the subject of happiness.
