A Film All About Being Nice

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.

It began with an article about James Fowler and his research concerning the viral nature of kindness. Fowler 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… With this in mind, the general consensus amongst researchers in this arena is that we are hardwired to cooperate with one another. In short, to be kind. This is our fundamental strength as a species and the reason why we are the most successful organism on the planet.

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 this incredible discovery and how it affects us and how a little generosity can help us live happier, healthier, wealthier, longer and more fulfilling lives.
