Cannon Arm and
the Arcade Quest
(Relaxed Screening)

Denmark 2021, 98 mins
Director: Mads Hedegaard

+ intro and discussion

The perfect film for the run up to London Games Week, this affectionate documentary offers a sublime portrait of a group of outsiders who support Kim Cannon Arm, a man of very few words, in his attempt to break the world record score of the 1980s arcade game Gyruss. It’s a generous and nuanced insight into the power of true friendship.

The post screening discussion will be hosted by Benjamin Brown.
