Riverside Theatre to screen Weird and Wonderful Documentaries later this month

Riverside Theatres will celebrate the wonderfully whacky and unashamedly weird with the inaugural Weird & Wonderful Doco Series on Saturday 22nd October 2016.

The program will include two stranger-than-fiction documentaries: A Brony Tale which explores men who like the cartoon My Little Pony; and Tickled, a look into the surprisingly sinister world of competitive endurance tickling.

A Brony Tale is directed by Brent Hodge and follows Canadian voice-over artist Ashleigh Ball as she ventures into the incredibly niche world of ‘Brony’ fandom – a subculture of adult men who are fans of My Little Pony.

Tickled is directed by David Farris and Dylan Reeve. NZ journalist and TV personality David Farrier stumbles upon a competitive tickling competition online. The clip of young men squirming under a tickling onslaught is the kind of bizarre subculture Farrier’s TV column celebrates, so he contacts the event organiser for an interview.
