ARIZONA PREMIERE

2011, USA, 77 Min
Documentary
Directed by Greg Stuetze & Alex Stickroth

Q&A with directors Greg Stuetze & Alex Stickrot and special guests after the film!

Twelve million gamers escape into the World of Warcraft each day. Is it possible for an escape to become an addiction?

/afk explores the relationship between online gamers and the games that they play. It examines the evolution of the World of Warcraft from its infancy to its non-existent conclusion and beyond, into the world of obsession. Through the lives of several key characters, it shows the joys associated with online games, and offers a objective look at some of its inherent trappings. /afk seeks to create a dialog about gamers in an attempt to bring understanding to the online gaming phenomenon and the 12 million gamers behind the World of Warcraft; the most successful MMO of all time. In doing so, one might assert that gaming can no sooner be understood than that of any other form of addiction: if it's an addiction at all.
