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!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

THIS AUGUST, TDC ENTERTAINMENT'S DISINFORMATION(R) IMPRINT BLOWS THE LID OFF A VERY COMMON AFFLICTION WITH THE FIRST SERIOUS DOCUMENTARY ON...

From Albert Nerenberg, the Acclaimed Director of STUPIDITY and LAUGHOLOGY Comes an Entertaining - Though Scholarly - Romp Through the Evolution of Boredom; Bonuses Include a Revolutionary

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

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![1]" and "anything but boring[2]", 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.

BONUS FEATURES
* 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.)

ABOUT DIRECTOR ALBERT NERENBERG

Albert Nerenberg is an acclaimed director and journalist -- and one of the world's top experts on laughter. He specializes in directing bold, one word documentaries on themes that have never been done before. STUPIDITY
and LAUGHOLOGY are the first feature-length documentaries on those subjects. Now, BOREDOM is the first film to expose the shocking facts about boredom! The inventor of the Ultimate Laughter Championships and a frequent keynote speaker on the power of laughter as well as on hypnosis., Nerenberg was the recipient of France's Rire D'Or Award for contribution to the understanding of laughter and has been named one of the 100 most influential people in the world in the areas of health and wellness by greatest.com. On the fiction side, he was the founder of Trailervision, a popular website featuring trailers for movies that don't exist, which CNN called an "international cult phenomenon". He has directed for such major broadcasters as Dreamworks SKG, the CBC and CTV and has been the subject of retrospectives at the Cinemateque Quebecoise and the Just For Laughs Festival. Nerenberg is currently organizing the European and American Laughing Championships.
