Cannon Arm and the Arcade Quest (2021)

Documentary 1h 30m 2021

Thurs 7 Oct 12:00-13:30

Unimposing to the average Joe, Kim Cannon Arm is a silent hero within the retro arcade-gaming world and especially within the constant bells and bright lights of Copenhagen’s Bip Bip Bar. With the hand-eye coordination of an athlete and sporting a very distinguished mullet, Kim is renowned for playing the 1980s arcade game Gyruss for 49 hours straight with just one coin. This time, he and the gang of friends who support each other through thick and thin aim to smash his previous record and play for 100 hours straight. Within this high-stakes journey of endurance is an affecting portrait of friends who are heroes to each other, but written-off by an unforgiving world. Think King vs. Kong with a splash of Freaks & Geeks. Lynn Nwokorie
