Gaming Film Fridays: Level Five (Dir. Chris Marker, 1997)

Fri, Feb 12, 2016 | 3:00 pm

Beginning February 12, join us for films that intersect with the Libraries’ spring 2016 Games Without Frontiers series. This semester’s critically-acclaimed films focus on the ties between games, the military, and violence.

This fictional documentary follows a computer programmer tasked with creating a videogame version of the Battle of Okinawa, one of World War II’s decisive battles. As the protagonist, Laura (Catherine Belkhodja), designs the game, questions surrounding historical memory, technology, and the future arise.
