A Small Good Thing

Happiness can sometimes be elusive. In a land of plenty, many feel disenfranchised and aimless. Relationships can be problematic and careers unfulfilling. So what, then, constitutes happiness?

That is the question explored in A Small Good Thing, a film by Pamela Tanner Boll, which will be screened March 4 at 2:30PM at Images Cinema, 50 Spring Street, Williamstown MA. Producer Paula Kirk will be present for a question and answer session.

A Small Good Thing follows six people with alternative concepts of happiness and success. From a social work student Tim Durrin to yoga teacher Mark Gerow to the Salinetti family and their farm, they find personal satisfaction via their links to nature, chosen professions and social interactions, foregoing conventional definitions.

Admission is free.

The film is part of Fresh Fest 2017 and is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council Festival Fund, Williams College Center for Environmental Studies, Zilkha Center and Storey Publishing.

Boll, an artist, filmmaker, writer and activist, has directed Who Does She Think She Is?, was the co-executive producer of the Academy Award-winning Born into Brothels and executive producer of eight other documentaries.
