Are videogames art? Do they influence violent behavior? What effect have they had on society? How would you describe videogames to Leonardo da Vinci? These are always great questions to start a conversation.
"Pixel Poetry" is a documentary film about progressive creative culture as it has been championed by one of its greatest advocates - videogames. Using popular debates that have long surrounded videogames as a catalyst for this, the film will analyze the misunderstood notions and arguments in art and technological advancement to bring a new perspective to a compelling discussion about the evolution of its meaning.
Featuring personalities from the worlds of gaming, tv, audio, and painting, the film is being directed by Richard James Cook and published by his own company Gamestar Arts, and distributed by hit indie label Devolver Digital Films. It is currently available on GoG.com, and soon on iTunes, cable VOD, XBox, Playstation, Roku, Vudu, Netflix, and Hulu.
