About the Film:


The incredible, anarchic story of one of the greatest video game studios of all time - Midway Games. Led by the legendary Eugene Jarvis, the tight-knit, scrappy company brought live action into video games in the 90s and launched a new arcade boom. Along the way, they grossed billions of dollars (in quarters) with massive hits like Mortal Kombat and NBA Jam - franchises still popular across generations! Featuring never-before-seen archive and hilarious interviews with the outlaw game designers themselves and experts like Ernest Cline (Ready Player One) and Carly Kucerek (Coin-Operated Americans).

Official Selection: SXSW 2020, Cleveland International Film Festival, BAFICI, Newport Beach Film Festival, Melbourne Documentary Film Festival, San Francisco Doc Fest.
