Tickled is a documentary film I have been following since its early stages. I am a fan of David Farrier’s work and I supported the Kickstarter for the film. The updates to Kickstarter backers during the film’s production was like following a thriller via email – rather compelling stuff. The film screened at Sundance and received extremely positive reviews [check our Alex Billington’s great review here].
New Zealand David Farrier journalist stumbles upon a mysterious tickling competition online. As he delves deeper he comes up against fierce resistance, but that doesn’t stop him getting to the bottom of a story stranger than fiction.
The film has US and NZ release dates, but an Australian release date is yet to be announced. If it doesn’t get a release beforehand, I wouldn’t be surprised if this popped up at the Sydney Film Festival. Either way, we’re eagerly anticipating the chance to see it! You can read more about the film over at the film’s website.
