Wizard Mode - CLOSING NIGHT FILM!
JEFF PETRY & NATHAN DRILLOT / 2016 / CANADA / 98 MINUTES / FILM RATING: G
SATURDAY NOVEMBER 12 / 7 PM
WORKMAN THEATRE (651 Dufferin Street, TTC Station: Dufferin)
At the age of five, Robert Gagno found a pinball machine in a hamburger joint. Today, more than twenty years later, he's one of the top ranked players in the world. Robert Gagno is also autistic, and Wizard Mode is a stirring documentary about how his condition fused with a game – requiring focus, dexterity and infinite patience – in the most unlikely yet amazing way. As we follow Gagno on his competitive journey to pinball 'wizard mode', we also track his struggle for independence. The world may be tough and the struggle steep, but the game has prepared him for battle.
