Audio Tracks 

Sofia Bohdanowicz's quiet masterpiece Maison du bonheur is a documentary that studies the day-to-day life of a Parisian astrologer, who has been residing in the same Montmartre apartment for over 50 years. Bohdanowicz brings her characteristic tenderness to bear on a subject whose purposeful, ordered existence exudes an all-encompassing joy rarely felt in contemporary cinema.
