Red Happiness is a film made during the Back to the Roots/Back to Our Origins project workshops at Balik Arts, with the participants from partner organisations from Germany, France, Turkey and the UK, led by filmmakers Julien Lahmi and Mustafa Boğa, all gathered in London to create this film in May 2012.

Back to the Roots/Back to Our Origins – Europe for Everybody is a transnational project funded by EU Grundtvig Lifelong Learning Programme, with partners from the UK (Balik Arts), Germany (Integrationswerk Respekt), France (Maison De l'Europe Yvelines) and Turkey (Municipality of Datça). It is a film recycling project for the 25+ age group, set out to explore what the ever-evolving, fluid concepts of identity, migration, roots and belonging being in today's Europe. In addition, each organisation created its own short recycled film within their national workshops, using the footage from 1950s and 60s submitted by each partner.
