The Happiness Machine

Ana Nedeljković / Hanna Hartman

The film is conceived as a simulation of a non-existent Video-game concerned with the business practices of a company which at first sight seems ideal. However, what happens if we look at the wider picture? Gradually, details are revealed - details that show the real emotions of people, various malpractices, violations of human rights and the environment… The "ideal" space, conceived and guided by financial considerations as the key objective, is being deconstructed before our eyes.
