DOUBLE HAPPINESS is a cinematic journey to China, where a clone of the Upper Austrian town of Hallstatt has been realized as a real estate project. The film tells of the copy planned in secret and of its discovery, of the motivation and the background for the construction of the fairy-tale-like replica in a region with a population of millions as a consequence of globalization. In Chinese, DOUBLE HAPPINESS stands for marrying and the associated happiness for both sides. The duplicated happiness unfolds in parallel worlds of original and copy, real life and fiction, dream and reality.
