Boring, Period.

A documentary exploring GenZ's experience with periods, touching on personal experience, what was (and more importantly wasn’t) taught in school, and stigmas that they still experience. We will interview people who have periods, comparing how individual each experience truly is. We will also include an element referred to as “the boys round table”- made up of 3 men of different sexualities, to take a quick look into their view on periods, and compare it to the truth.

Director Statement

“Boring, period is something I want to help drive change in attitudes towards menstruation - to stop treating it like it’s a dirty act and see the function for what it is, natural. With the documentary exploring the many layers that come with having a period, the most profound part of this production is the overarching need for change within education. If generation Z can see that so clearly, why can’t others?”
