The King of Kong...

This coming Wednesday I'm presenting my film choice at at the University of Sunderland's CineClub, and I've chose the 2007 docudrama King of Kong: A Fistful of Dollars. I'll be introducing the film and setting the context for the screening - I expect many people in the audience will be unfamiliar with the world of competitive gaming, so this will be a real eye-opener for them.  In preparation of this I've made a couple of posters to advertise the event.  I thought I bung them up here in case nobody reads the CineClub's website.  Enjoy!

I was going to screen this wonderful little docudrama last term but the weather got in the way. There’s nothing stopping us this semester. In case you don’t know anything about the movie, here’s the blurb:

A middle-school science teacher and a hot sauce mogul vie for the Guinness World Record on the arcade classic, Donkey Kong. Steve Wiebe and Billy Mitchell engage in a cross-country duel to see who could get the high score and become the King of Kong. Along the way they learn what it means to be father, a husband and a true champion. This docudrama is a heart-warming story of dedication and determination. It’s also a relatively rare opportunity to get a glimpse of the history and culture of arcade and video games, long since forgotten in the wake of the success of recent giants like Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft.

Entry is free and it'd be great if to see you there (directions info: here).    In case you know nothing at all about this little gem, check out the trailer below:
