Kindness Is Contagious is a feel-good documentary, narrated by Catherine Ryan Hyde, the best selling author of the novel (and film) Pay It Forward. It’s a film all about being nice and the benefits of being nice. Kindness Is Contagious profiles cutting-edge scientists and best-selling authors from Berkeley to Harvard and everywhere in between as well as real life people from all walks of life whose lives illustrate their incredible discovery:

NICE GUYS FINISH FIRST!

Kindness Is Contagious asks one surprisingly difficult question: What is the nicest thing that anyone has done for you?

Street performers, soup kitchen volunteers, police officers, models, CEOs, baseball players, roller girls, concert pianists, artists, and many more tell you their heartfelt stories of kindness and generosity.

Learn how a little generosity can help YOU live a happier, healthier, wealthier, longer and more fulfilling life.

The film screening of the documentary will be followed by Q&A with the director David Gaz and researchers interviewed in the film, including James Fowler.
