The Museum of Modern Art presents the world premiere of 8 BIT (2006), a feature-length documentary exploring the history of artists and video games. This melange of rockumentary and art expose examines early hacker culture and interviews contemporary musicians, artists, and programmers who repurpose game hardware, modify existing games, and create original games.
Filmed in New York City, Los Angeles, Paris, and Tokyo, 8 BIT offers a global perspective on the artistic approaches of those who grew up playing early video games on the Atari and Commodore 64 consoles.
Film Admission: $10 adults; $8 seniors, 65 years and over with I.D. $6 full-time students with current I.D. (For admittance to film programs only)
