When Good Goes Viral (video)

The documentary film Good Virus debunks the "nice guys finish last" notion and suggests kindness is our default. Catch the screening at Stanford's Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE). 

Doing good is catching on, according to the documentary film Good Virus. Narrated by Pay It Forward author Catherine Ryan Hyde, the film examines how we spread kindness throughout the world and suggests that it may be our default state. The film includes interviews with, among others, Dacher Keltner, director of the Greater Good Science Center at University of California–Berkeley, and James Fowler, author of Connected: The Surprising Power of Our Social Networks.

Good Virus is screening on the Stanford School of Medicine campus on Thursday, December 4, 2014 at 6 p.m. The documentary screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director, David Gaz, and researchers in the film, including James Fowler.
