“Happiness”: Illustrator Steve Cutts Tackles The Rat Race Wherein We Find Ourselves

In Steve Cutts’ own words, Happiness is “the story of a rodent’s unrelenting quest for happiness and fulfillment”. Be sure not to let the film’s title or his synopsis fool you — animator, illustrator and, not least of all, social commentator Steve Cutts has never been one to equivocate when it comes to detailing the world as he sees it.

From overcrowded subway carriages to Black Friday sales, mind-numbing office jobs to the cavalcade of advertising with which we are faced on a daily basis, “Happiness” pulls no punches and presents a harsh, chilling society, touching upon aspects such as the short-term fulfilment achieved through alcohol and drug use and our fascination with material goods.
