The Price of Happiness

The Price of Happiness

director: Rodrigo Muñoz
original title: Le Prix du bonheur
country: Switzerland
year: 2020
running time: 18 min.


Facing exorbitant fees for sessions with his therapist, Rodrigo Muñoz finds a great economical use of resources in this self–dramatization which portrays the account of his depression. In confronting the pecuniary dimension of the day-to-day, Rodrigo ironically seizes upon film as a process of emancipation.


Rodrigo Muñoz was born in Switzerland and at 9 moved to Tanzania for three years. Then he went to live in Chile for two years. He finished his compulsory education in Lausanne, Switzerland and in 2014 obtained his high school diploma specializing in Physics and Applied Maths. Due to his fascination with cinematographic language, he makes films that combine fantasy, absurdity and reality.
