About the event
Rated 99% on Rotten Tomatoes, this 2007 documentary bring viewers into the little-known world of competitive video gaming, specifically the ‘classic’ era of the 1980’s...and even more specifically, the most desired title of them all: the high score in the game DONKEY KONG. The competitive drive is surprisingly fierce, with emotions running high, as socially-challenged middle-aged men claw their way to the top! One of the most bizarre, hilarious and yes, even touching, documentaries you will ever see. You may have a hard time believing that the people in this film are actually real people, but they are!! Truly a case of the truth being stranger than fiction. The curators of this film series give it their 100% guarantee a good time.
