Triangles of Happiness

Hanne and Carsten are desperately trying to keep up with the illusion of a happy family life to their nosy neighbors.

But how do you keep up with the illusion of a happy life in times of crisis. Financial crisis.

Director Biography - Janik Dahl Pedersen

Jannik Dahl Pedersen is a danish short film director. He is currently in his third year at the danish alternative film school 18FRAMES. He is also studying Filmscience at the University of Copenhagen. Working on his extensive filmografi it has always been the comedy that has attracted Jannik, and he has both sketches and more creative satires on his resume. To Jannik, comedy isn’t about a certain amount of laughs per minute. But more about happiness, surprice and catharsis, which ultimately can be a part of any kind of story.
