Hey, Happy!

A perversely lavish Cinemascope display of rave bliss-outs and love conquers all ebullience.
... demented in a good way.
-Liz Braun, JAM MOVIES


DJ Sabu’s overactive libido leads him to an unexpected teenage pregnancy. His mythic quest for two thousand boys ends with Happy, a paranoid “UFO-ologist” to whom aliens promise to appear (as his love child). Spanky is an evil hairdresser trying to foil Sabu’s mission. He is the self-proclaimed “biggest bitch in the world”. The action unfolds at a series of raves on old Garbage Hill in a strange place called Winnipeg. Hey, Happy! depicts an optimistic vision of the apocalypse. Director Noam Gonick says that tens of millions of religious fundamentalists can't be wrong, "There must be a connection between biblical 'end-times' and fags." The sexual libertine as progenitor and the creative potential of boy-boy sex are ideas Noam Gonick likes. Noam Gonick has been named "a Hebrew pornographer of the most dangerous kind". Hey, Happy! is his first feature film.
