Amir Bar-Levin's documentary Happy Valley details how the higher-ups at Penn State, both University officials and those who ran the football program, hid the truth about a child molestation scandal that, when it finally came to light, caused the ouster of longtime head coach Joe Paterno, who was central in the cover-up. The film shows how the community remained in a mindset of denial surrounding the incidents.
