When he discovers the peculiar phenomena of competitive endurance tickling, Kiwi TV-reporter David Farrier slips down the rabbit hole into a world of curious sexual fetishes, outsized internet personalities and a bizarre culture of secrecy and harassment. Determined to get to the bottom of why the shadowy figure pulling the strings is desperate to avoid attention, Farrier intensifies his investigations. The resulting film is TICKLED – one of the most fascinating, baffling and talked-about documentaries of 2016.
