Man's Search for Happiness is a 13-minute film produced by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It explains the role of the Plan of Salvation in LDS theology, with questions like "Who am I?", "Where did I come from?", and "Where am I going?" being explored from an LDS perspective.
This film was produced by the BYU Motion Picture Studio for the Mormon Pavilion at the 1964 World's Fair in New York, and was viewed by over five million people, many of whom were not LDS. It was later remade in Japanese for Expo '70 in Japan, and again in 1987 in English.
