Double Happiness is a cinematic journey to China. The film tells of the motivation for and background of a real-estate project in which a clone of the picturesque village of Hallstatt is realized in the midst of a region with a million-fold population. In Chinese, “Double Happiness” stands for marriage and the happiness for both sides associated with it. Duplicated happiness unfolds in parallel worlds of original and copy, reality and fiction, dream and reality. (Production notes)
