365 Days: A Year in Happy Valley
365 DAYS: A YEAR IN HAPPY VALLEY
A journey into the heart of State College, one of the world’s most beloved university towns, to reveal whether the crimes of Jerry Sandusky will redefine not only the way the world views it, but how those who live there or cherish it feel about how they are perceived. The film explores the quest for justice, the role of the media in shaping public perception, and the collateral damage of a rush to judgment. Emotionally engaging, “365 Days: A Year in Happy Valley” will leave you contemplating complex issues about the search for truth. The film also explores the concept of forgiveness as a way for individuals to heal from unimaginable adversity.
“Erik Proulx’s film about the Penn State community’s impossible journey from betrayal and national scandal to a place of reconciliation and forgiveness, is beautiful and thought provoking. It should be required viewing for anyone who is forced to live through– and beyond– tragedy.”
“It’s excellent. I love the rhythm of it: the sense of an emotional unfolding rather than an exposé. Very human and humane without sugar coating. Stylistically unhurried yet at its core urgent and emphatic.”
—Bruce Sheridan, Producer of documentary film “Head Games”, Chairperson of Columbia College Chicago’s Film & Video Department.
“Your treatment of the story was balanced, without preaching. This may well become the definitive film on this subject, in any format.”
—Dan Chase, Director of documentary film “Perseverance: The Story of Dr. Billy Taylor,” Black Point West, Perseverance Films
“I’ve watched over 150 documentaries in the past 2 years, this is the only one I burst out crying at. Amazing way of telling two stories of incredible horror and heartache, and the beauty of forgiveness. Grab it. Well done Erik Proulx.”
-Scott Stratten, 3X Author, Speaker, UnPodcast Co-host, President UnMarketing.com
