...And the Pursuit of Happiness

...And the Pursuit of Happiness ★★★★½

Malle does not attempt ethnography or analysis which makes this documentary so compelling. Refugees, asylees, all immigrants, each have their own story that can’t be told properly by anyone else. How fortunate is Malle to have had some access to these people’s lives and ask them questions that affirm the incredibly broad immigrant experience. And how fortunate as a viewer to have a small glimpse into these lived experiences. Visually stunning as well!
