A FILM on why Denmark is one of the happiest nations on earth is set to shown across Scotland.

Denmark: The State of Happiness – produced by journalist Lesley Riddoch and filmmaker Charlie Stuart – aims to inspire Scots to think differently about how a small country can be run.

It is the latest in a series of films Riddoch has already presented on Estonia, Norway, Iceland and the Faroes.

At several showings, Riddoch will take part in Q&As. Tickets are available here.

The film includes interviews with dozens of Danes, many of whom have visited Scotland as speakers with Nordic Horizons – the policy group set up by Riddoch with Labour Party member Dan Wynn 13 years ago.

The film was made on a budget of just £10,000 and has been funded by the Scottish Independence Foundation and individual independence supporters.  

Riddoch also hopes it can at some point be shown to MSPs in the Scottish Parliament to inspire fresh thinking on policy.
