Hot Docs 2016: Tickled

A journalist investigates a competitive tickling league in Tickled. David Farrier is a pop culture journalist in New Zealand, who likes to focus on the weird and bizarre. One day he comes across a video for “Competitive Endurance Tickling” and decides to investigate this apparent tickling league. What he discovers is way bigger than he has ever imagined.

Tickled is a documentary that really needs to be seen to be believed. In fact, it is probably best to see this film knowing as little about David Farrier’s investigation as possible. What I can say about the film that this is indeed one of those stranger than fiction cases, which will likely leave people thinking “Is this for real?” All I have left to say about Tickled is that this is a documentary that quite worth checking out.
