A new documentary called Case for Kindness features interviews with scientists and celebrities about the power of an act of kindness. Acts of kindness release endorphins and oxytocin, and can have profound effects on those involved mentally, physically, and spiritually. Director Steven Sawalich believes that kindness is the one thing that connects us as humans, and he traveled around the country to create this humanitarian documentary that examines kindness’ impact on society and communities. Lady Gaga, Ben Affleck, and Garth Brooks are some of the celebrities included in Case for Kindness as they share personal stories about how acts of kindness have touched their lives. The film is making a splash in the festival circuit and is expected to be released to the public soon.
