Film information

Story: Zak Penn narrates and directs this documentary about the fabled Atari video game burial of 1983. After the overwhelming negative response to the release of the Atari 2600 game 'E.T. the Extra Terrestrial' in 1982 the company was reported to have crushed and buried the remaining game cartridges in a landfill in Alamogordo, New Mexico. Interviewing those involved, including game designer Howard Scott, the film-makers document their attempts to investigate the event that has now become known as a fabled urban legend. They also examine the rumoured site of the event to try and recover any remaining evidence of the games.
