Not Rated
80 minutes, Digital Projection

When Ryan, a video game designer, learns that his young son Joel has cancer, he and his wife begin documenting their emotional journey in the form of an unusual and poetic video game. The result is a game called "That Dragon, Cancer" - an astoundingly honest and innovative work of art about the universal complexity of grief. Thank You For Playing follows Ryan and his family over two years, offering an intimate, revolutionary glimpse into how the fusion of art and technology - in this case, a video game - can document profound human experiences in the modern age. This feature will be preceded by a short film (approximately 15 minutes) about the Harper Cancer Research Institute directed by Dakota Connell-Ledwon (ND '18) and Anna Poltrack (ND '18).

This is a free but ticketed event. To guarantee your reservation please pick-up your Will Call tickets at least 15 minutes prior to the performance. In the event of a sell out, unclaimed Will Call tickets will be used to seat patrons waiting on standby.

Co-presented by Harper Cancer Research Institute.
