8 BIT: Video Game Documentary
By James Grahame
A glimpse into the "digital heritage" of Generation X and the impact that video games have had on our culture and art. Upcoming screenings include Montreal, Berkeley and Austin. I'm definitely looking forward to the DVD. [thanks, Giles!]
"A mélange of a rocumentary, art expose and a culture-critical investigation, 8 BIT ties together seemingly disconnected phenomena like the 80’s demo scene, chiptune music and contemporary artists using machinima and modified games. Produced in NYC, LA, Paris and Tokyo, 8 BIT brings a global perspective on the new artistic approaches of the DIY generation which grew up playing Atari and Commodore 64."
