Second Sunday Culture Films Series
In Pursuit of Happiness (2009)
After the recent grand economic bust in Japan, the homeless population has grown. This short film introduces you to the lives of men who live on the outskirts of the city, and of Japanese society, while simultaneously exploring the nature of happiness. Dr. Kyle Cleveland, Temple University in Japan, facilitates a discussion. This program is cosponsored by the Penn Center for East Asian Studies and Penn Cinema Studies. Free with Museum admission.
