Born to be Mild

Celebrating the Ordinary

The short documentary Born to be Mild follows several men and their unusual hobbies. They are all members of The Dull Men’s Club and pride themselves on being extraordinarily ordinary. Directed by Andy Oxley.

AO: I have always been drawn to the more mundane, everyday aspects of life. So when I stumbled across the Dull Men’s Club, I got quite excited and couldn’t stop myself from making a film about them. These men see everyday things differently, and I loved sitting back and listening to them talk.
