A Natural History of Laughter

(A Natural History of Laughter) Director: Jacques Mitsch, F, 2011, English version / Czech subtitles, 52 min

For how long have we been laughing? Are human beings the only ones to laugh? We know that bonobos, chimpanzees and orangutans also enjoy having a good laugh, especially when tickled. There is even a "tickling machine" at the Institute of Neurology in London. What are the latest discoveries about neuronal and ethnological origins of laughter? This film, is about why and how we laugh, a scientific and behavioral approach about laughter. It sure will make you laugh but not only in the way you expect.
