'Chasing Ghosts' on Showtime

My friend Lisa Wiegand DPd this awesome documentary about the golden age of arcade video games. In addition to having great footage from the early 80s, a moment when geeks were truly revered, the film follows up on the top-scoring guys 25 years later. If you missed it at Sundance, it’s playing on Showtime this week. Set your DVRs and prepare for a trip to a magical cringe-inducing age of yesteryear.
