    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! It all began with an article about James Fowler and Nicholas Christakis and their research concerning the viral nature of kindness. Fowler and Christakis demonstrated that if you are kind to one person, they will be kind to four other people, and that each of those four people will be kind to four more people, and so on and so on… eventually circling back around to you again. Showing in fact that Karma may actually exist in the scientific sense. In Kindness is Contagious, the filmmakers asked people from all walks of life one deceptively difficult question: “What is the nicest thing anyone ever did for you?” Street performers, soup kitchen volunteers, police officers, models, CEOs, baseball players, roller girls, concert pianists, artists, and many more share 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. (Dir. by David Gaz, 2015, USA, 75 mins., Not Rated)
