THE SCIENCE OF BOREDOM

A FILM BY
Judith Koenig

This is a film about one of the most exciting research topics of the last ten years: boredom. The state of apathy, of doing nothing, of hanging around fascinates neurologists, psychologists and evolutionary biologists. Why are we bored at all? Why is this so excruciatingly dull? Do men feel bored in a different way compared to women? Can boredom make you ill? Or: is it even the motor of creativity?
