Happy to be Here

Sean MacPherson’s Happy to be Here
Winnipeg Cinematheque
Tuesday, May 4th at 8pm!
$10

Come on down to the Winnipeg Premier of of DIY filmmaker Sean MacPherson’s lo-fi, no-budget, labor of love and hate, Happy to be Here.

A sort-of heart warming feature film about passive aggression, having a nice day and forgetting the names of your family members, Happy to be Here is the story of Dorian Winters, who, after his father Butch suffers a massive stroke and donates his life savings to a seemingly illegitimate dolphin charity, embarks on a journey to discover the challenges of making peace with one’s family and finding the true meaning of happiness…

A feature film shot on a budget of $1500 in a 400 square ft apartment, Happy to be Here was shot in truly independent fashion. From oysters and grey goose at the Cannes 2009, to rejection, to half-boxes of KD and tap water. The film and filmmaker have been on a wild roller coaster of love and hate for the last two years…

Finally fed up with the “independent” film system, the filmmaker is embarking on a self-funded film tour across Canada – coming to a city near you this spring!!!
