About Kindness Is Contagious

A Film By David Gaz

Kindness Is Contagious is a feel-good documentary by David Gaz, 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:

Showing in fact that Karma may actually exist in the scientific sense.

We asked people from all walks of life one deceptively difficult question:

What is the nicest thing anyone ever did for you?
