Happy to be Here

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

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!!!
