Born To Be Mild EDU

  • Overview: A cheerful celebration of the very ordinary, Born to be Mild explores the uncommon hobbies practiced by the members of the Dull Men’s Club. This short documentary played at SXSW, and introduced viewers to the mildly profound virtue of being ‘dull, not boring’.

    Class Suggestions: Born To Be Mild is perfect to assign as a class project. Each character's story can be cut independently, then assembled by one team "lead" editor. The storylines are very family friendly, but would be more interesting to college age students and older. Directed by Andy Oxley.
