"Fought all through time, to ends to find, which console is the better...."26 November 2012Drama71 mins
This collaboration between Mega64 and legendary game composer and video game icon Tommy Tallarico may be the most important piece of art in video game or cinema history. A singular artist and activist, Tommy Tallarico is best known for the galvanizing films of The Gamer Warz Saga. Astonishingly photographed, and featuring unforgettable, cascading scores by Tallarico himself, these are immersive sensory experiences that meditate on the havoc humankind's obsession with technological advancement has wreaked on our world. From 2008's Gamer Warz to 2010's Gamer Warz 2 to 2011's Gamer Warz 3, Tallarico takes us on a journey from the ancient to the contemporary, from nature to industry, exploring games out of balance, in transformation, and as war, all the while keeping our eyes wide with wonder.
Four tales unfold in the Eternal City: While vacationing in Rome, architect John encounters a young man whose romantic woes remind him of a painful incident from his own youth; retired opera director Jerry discovers a mortician with an amazing voice, and he seizes the opportunity to rejuvenate his own flagging career; a young couple have separate romantic interludes; a spotlight shines on an ordinary man.
When an evil spirit known as Pitch lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must join forces for the first time to protect the hopes, beliefs and imagination of children all over the world.
