Cannon Arm and the Arcade Quest – Watch the trailer for the new arcade game documentary

The debut feature from Mads Hedegaard about friendship and arcade games was recently awarded the Special Jury Prize by the Dublin Film Critics Circle at the Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival in March.

Kim Cannon Arm – father, grandfather, laboratory technician, legend. With the help from his friends at Bip Bip Bar the documentary follows Cannon Arm’s attempts to be the first in the world to play an arcade machine from the early ’80s for 100 consecutive hours. With its collection of heroic outsiders, dreams about legendary world records, quirky hairdos and brilliant players, the film praises solidarity and the attempt to achieve the sublime.

The crowd-pleasing film, loved by critics and audiences alike, has screened at numerous film festivals worldwide and picked up the Audience Award at the prestigious Hot Docs Festival in Canada.

The film hits UK cinemas from Friday 24th June. Available digitally from Monday 27th June.
