According to The Gates Foundation, 47% of US high school dropouts claim they were bored. In 2010, researchers at the University College of London put forth that employees in boring jobs have a 40% higher mortality rate. But what is boredom and where does it come from? Can one really be "bored to death'? And how can you fight it?
In Boredom, award-winning director and investigative journalist Albert Nerenberg (Stupidity, Laughology, Escape to Canada) poses these essential questions, asks why the subject of boredom has been so religiously avoided and shows that boredom isn't what you think it is. Prompted by a study that revealed that boredom may actually be a stress condition, the documentary begins with the 2011 London riots, which, although they were started for political reasons, were spread partly by - you guessed it - boredom! In this festival favorite called "an absolute must see!" and "anything but boring", audiences will visit The Boring Institute, where cutting edge-research is taking place, meet a woman who can never be bored, discover which common, everyday substance you probably use masks boredom - and much more!
Despite the film's satirical tone and entertaining approach, Nerenberg serves up serious food for thought on the evolution of boredom, education and the younger generation, and our relationship with new technologies. In doing so, the lid is blown off the boredom conspiracy revealing a culture that not only tolerates boredom but actually promotes it.
* A Revolutionary Accelerated Unboring Version for the Easily Bored. Really! (48 mins.)
* Featurette: "Stages of Boredom" (3 mins.)
* Featurette: "The Mountain that Boredom Built" (4 mins.)
