Anthropologist/filmmaker Rouch and sociologist Morin collaborated on this influential and unforgettable look at ordinary Parisians in the summer of 1960. By asking all of their subjects the basic question, “Are you happy?”, Rouch and Morin uncover the hopes and dreams of individuals from all walks of life. The screening will be followed by a discussion with filmmaker Damien Chazelle and UW Madison Professor of Film Kelley Conway. Restored 2K DCP courtesy Cineteca di Bologna.
