The HAPPINESS Colloquium film series at Lebanon Valley College will screen the 2011 documentary "Jiro Dreams of Sushi" Tuesday March 12 at 5:30 p.m. in Annville's Allen Theatre. Admission is $3 for the public, $1 for non-LVC students, and free for LVC students with student ID.

Following an 85-year-old sushi master, Jiro Ono, this documentary explores happiness through hard work, dedication, and tradition as Jiro prepares sushi in his Tokyo-based restaurant in the basement of an office building.

The inspiring story of Ono also observes his relationship with his son, Yoshikazu, who will eventually step into his father's shoes, controlling the successful restaurant. Together they maintain the life-long mission of producing perfect pieces of sushi, time after time.

In 2012, the San Diego Film Critics Society Awards nominated "Jiro Dreams of Sushi" for "Best Documentary."

HAPPINESS is a year-long integrated series of guest speakers, roundtable discussions, films and courses that will consider the meaning and importance of happiness as a psychological, physiological, social and cultural phenomenon. It involves presentations by speakers from a number of disciplines who approach the theme from the standpoints of the arts, the wellness of body and mind, the demands of a consumer economy, the expectations and duties of political life, and the broad philosophical questions of human flourishing.
