HAPPINESS (FINALLY) AFTER 35,000 YEARS OF CIVILIZATION [BETA V.1]
How long does it take to build utopia? Who is going to build it? Most importantly, will the food and sex be any good there? In HAPPINESS, Chan reinterprets and animates the drawings of outsider artist Henry Darger (1892-1972) and the writings of utopia socialist Charles Fourier (1772-1837) to explore our western conception of utopia and the struggle to create a more equitable, pleasurable, and self-sustaining society.
