The Pursuit of Happiness

1983, 58:45 min, color, sound

The Pursuit of Happiness explores how the elusive "inalienable right" of the "pursuit of happiness" affects the lives of six individuals — including a woman who works with the anti-nuclear activists Plowshares 8, two prison inmates, and the warden of a state penitentiary. Shot in Pittsburgh, this absorbing narrative explores the subjective meaning of happiness.
