Universal has released the first trailer for its new documentary The Fine Art of Not Giving #@%, based on Mark Manson's best-selling self-help book, which explores society's obsession with the pursuit of happiness.
The documentary, directed by Nathan Price and produced by Matthew Metcalf, is an adaptation of Manson's book, which has sold more than 15 million copies worldwide since its release in 2017. According to the film's official synopsis, the film by ri is “a documentary film designed to help. We are becoming less and less wonderful people” with some R-language truths.
Manson stars in the documentary and directs the story because it "transcends the insanity of expressing his no-#@%! philosophy. A raw, refreshing dose of honesty that shows us how to live fuller, fuller lives." (The project also features the Panda of Disappointment, the character who appears in the book and whose superpower tells people the hard truth).
"One day you will die. I want to remind you," says the author, opening the trailer for the film, introducing himself and explaining why it is "stupid" to walk in the bush, because he believes that one's worth is to be special, special and extraordinary.
Refuting this notion is a major pillar of Manson's advice on how to be truly positive, grateful, and, as a result, happy. It's about changing your mindset to understand that the future of social media is based on desire, or the brain's perception of what is "better" rather than what is necessary. In fact, at the end of the day, Manson says, "There are only a few things in life worth abusing."
The trailer is a series of historical and personal anecdotes that the filmmakers use to illustrate Manson's unique brand of self-help, with the author himself at the center of the action. For example, in one scene, she can be seen lounging on a moving cart surrounded by synchronized swimmers as she teases what happens next in the film.
"It would be so much easier if you could take six simple steps to success in life," says Manson. "But to really understand, you have to experience it."
The synopsis further explains: "'Beautiful Art No Giving #@%' has sold more than 15 million copies. She has captivated readers around the world, and now her absurd life-changing advice is coming to the screen. Whether with academic researchers who cat-eyed quips: 'It's a fine art not #@%' shows us that improving our lives depends not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on our ability to digest lemons.'
"It's a fine art not #@%." For theatrical release January 4, Universal has partnered with global media marketing and distribution company Abramorama, which specializes in feature films and music. The film will also be available for rental and digital download from January 9. For more information, visit www.subtleartmovie.com.
