Performers, Cast and Crew:
A duo of inquisitive, peripatetic nuns discuss the nature of happiness with random passersby on the streets of Chicago in 1967. The candid remarks contain thoughts on the American involvement in Vietnam, race relations, and social issues. Produced by Kartemquin Films.
A provocative but enlightening documentary featuring a pair of nuns who pound the pavement on the gritty streets of 1968 Chicago asking everyone from hippies to professors to much maligned African-American comedian Stepin Fetchit, "Are you happy'" The honest human emotion lifts the film beyond the interview format as it offers a window into 1968 America -- one of the country's most turbulent years.
