8 bit : a documentary

I was interviewed during the festival High score for a documentary about 8 bit art and video games.

Trailer of the documentary :

“Premiered at the Museum of Modern Art and voted by ArtForum as one of the year’s ten best films, 8 Bit is an acclaimed hybrid documentary exploring the history of artists and video games.

This mélange of rockumentary and art exposé examines early hacker culture and interviews contemporary musicians, artists, and programmers who repurpose game hardware, modify existing games, and create original games.
