Cannon Arm And The Arcade QuestDenmark, 2021 : Alberta Premiere
With help from his colourful friends, Kim Cannon Arm sets out to break the world record and do what no one has ever done before: play his favorite arcade game Gyruss for 100 hours …nonstop.
Kim Cannon Arm is not your average grandpa. With killer hand-eye coordination and a mean mullet, he's a legendary fixture at Copenhagen's Bip Bip Bar, and renowned for playing the '80s arcade game Gyruss for 49 hours straight on a single coin. With help from his buddies at the bar, Kim attempts to obliterate his previous record and play for 100 consecutive hours (four days!). Dense with nerdy narration and deep thoughts, quantum physics and pattern recognition, this quest follows Kim and the gang as they apply their collective knowledge to the task at hand—leaving their mark on the world and paying tribute to a fallen friend.
