Meeting: Pinball and other fixations. Tales of the geeks
Following the screening of "Cannon Arm and The Arcade Quest", dir. Mads Hedegaard
Partner: K MAG
Before the screening, you will be able to play pinball machines from the 'Pinball Station' Interactive Pinball Museum.
We were inspired to talk about humans and their passions by the story of Kim “Cannon Arm” Købke trying to beat his unbelievable record for playing an arcade game. We’re particularly interested in seemingly unnecessary passions, those frequently deemed “harmless peculiarities”. Games are just a single example—anything can be a passion! There are people who can’t imagine not collecting objects, others lose themselves in gardening after work, others still spend insane amounts of time playing board games. And that’s great! After all, our hobbies let us take life with a smile and survive difficult times. Join us to talk with people so hyped up about their hobbies, they don’t care what others think.
