Joshua Tsui is a video game and film director best known for his work with Mortal Kombat and Tony Hawk.
We will be screening his latest film, a documentary called INSERT COIN. Insert Coin had its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival in 2020 and has gone on to screen at fests worldwide.
"It's the amazing behind-the-scenes story of one of the greatest video game studios of all time – Midway Games. Led by the “Godfather of Videogames” Eugene Jarvis, the company pioneered the concept of live-action gaming, kickstarting a new arcade boom and grossing billions of dollars in the process with massive hits like Mortal Kombat and NBA Jam.
Through intimate and often hilarious interviews with the people there, we witness how a small, tight-knit group of friends deal with controversy, next-level success, and the roller coaster ride that comes with it." - Summary on the Insert Coin website, insertcoindoc.com.
