Rise Of The Sufferfests
Home | Rise Of The Sufferfests
RISE OF THE SUFFERFESTS is the first feature documentary about the obstacle course craze. Simply put, the film asks WHY millions of people are suddenly paying for pain. And what it says about the world we’re living in. Narcissism epidemic? Masculinity crisis? White privilege? Loneliness in the digital age? To help shed light on the phenomenon, investigative journalist Scott Keneally enlists a motley crew of athletes and insiders from the cultish OCR community, as well as a broad range of notable experts – Morgan Spurlock, Laird Hamilton, Tim Ferriss, Hanna Rosin, AJ Jacobs and Dr. Jean Twenge, to name a few. The self-proclaimed “wimpy white male” also dives deep into the crucible, tackling some of the world’s most brutal sufferfests. Far from just a movie about mud, it’s a film about modern life… and the journey of a “just-enougher” to embrace the suck and STFU in the face of fatherhood.
