Eudemonia, a Greek word that refers to the happiness that results from the exercise of moral virtue, practical wisdom, and rationality. In fewer words, Eudemonia means happiness.
“With Eudemonia I wanted to showcase something that people can do without having to depend on social interactions”
90% of modern-day psychology focuses on healing people with existing mental issues, whilst only 10% is about positive psychology and about learning to reach our full potential and becoming our best self – to find happiness from within.
David Djite, one of the most positive snowboarders to walk this earth, is on his third year of psychology studies. During his studies, David found the course on positive psychology to really spike his interest and saw it as a good way to
become aware of keeping a positive mindset – a mindset that became extremely important during the lockdown caused by the pandemic. “I saw a lot of my friends struggling with the isolation and losing the normal social life. With Eudemonia I wanted to showcase something that people can do without having to depend on social interactions”, he tells us.
Putting together a snowboard film in the midst of a global pandemic was a new experience for both snowboarder David Djite and director Fabian Fuchs (Vans Oasen, Atagge Planetaria…). The two had met a few years back on the shoot for Planetaria but didn’t really know each other too well, only by reputation. David thinks back about how it all started, “I knew Fabi was a really good filmmaker, artist and director, so I got in contact with him through Alex Tank.”
