Happy or Not?
- 62 minutes SD
Happy or Not? is Wu Wuna’s second film, and the deserving winner of the Best Documentary Award at the Taipei Film Festival. Wu’s own sympathetic personality wins her intimate access to a widow struggling to look after two schizophrenic adult children. Surprisingly light yet profoundly moving, Happy or Not? takes us beyond the myths and prejudices to understand an ordinary but extraordinary family trying to get the assistance they need and cope with the consequences of taking – or not taking – medication. Wu is drawn into confidences and conspiracies, producing the complex ethical dilemmas that come with caring and getting involved, and making the film even more compelling viewing.
