May I Be Happy

ARCHIVE: 2018 FESTIVAL

  France/USA | 77 mins. | 2017 | Documentary Feature

Directed by: Eric Georgeault & Hélène Walter  

May I Be Happy brings awareness to the benefits of mindfulness as a way out of violence and suffering, and as an attainable solution for younger generations. It captures the very real challenges American children face, whether in elite private schools, public schools, on the streets or in juvenile detention centers.  Hearing the frustration of dedicated educators who find ways to teach from the heart and seeing their optimistic work with youth is an uplifting experience.  Interviews with teachers and leaders in the field of mindfulness research and education, including Dr. Dan Siegel and Vinnie Ferraro, offer insight into the growing practice of mindfulness in education.
