Fall Film Festival: Tickled
The PROXY Fall Film Festival presents five FREE Friday night movies outdoors at the PROXY Walk-in Theater.
Directed by David Farrier and Dylan Reeve, 2016
“Terrifically entertaining” — Manohla Dargis, New York Times
After stumbling upon a mysterious tickling competition video online, journalist David Farrier reaches out to request an interview for a light, puff piece for New Zealand TV. But the response he receives is not what he expected — he is answered with virulent insults about his sexual orientation and threats of extreme legal action should he dig any deeper. Shocked but intrigued, David ignores these threats and starts investigating — a journey that takes him around the world, and leads him to uncover a bizarre and vast empire of harassment and abuse. The further he goes, the stranger, darker, and outlandishly-entertaining this detective story becomes. “Tickled” is a wild and fascinating ride through a secret wormhole into a hidden world of wealth, power, and anonymity.
