Encore Screening of Audience Award Winner /AFK

On Friday November 11th 8pm at The Screening Room 127 E. Congress, we will be presenting an encore screening of this year’s Audience Award Winner /AFK.

/afk explores the relationship between online gamers and the games that they play. It examines the evolution of the World of Warcraft from its infancy to its non-existent conclusion and beyond, into the world of obsession. Through the lives of several key characters, it shows the joys associated with online games, and offers a objective look at some of its inherent trappings. /afk seeks to create a dialog about gamers in an attempt to bring understanding to the online gaming phenomenon and the 12 million gamers behind the World of Warcraft; the most successful MMO of all time. In doing so, one might assert that gaming can no sooner be understood than that of any other form of addiction: if it’s an addiction at all.
