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 our lives, with questions like "Who am I?", "Where did I come from?", and "Where am I going?" being explored.

This film was produced by the BYU Motion Picture Studio for the Mormon Pavilion at the 1964 World's Fair in New York[1], and was viewed by over five million people[2], many of whom were not LDS. It was later remade in Japanese for Expo '70 in Japan, and again in 1987 in English.
