Logline: We follow Ryan & his wife Amy over 2 years as they build a beautiful & unusual videogame about their son with cancer. The film offers an intimate glimpse into how the fusion of art & technology can document profound human experiences in the modern age.
When Ryan 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. Following Ryan’s family through the creation of the game, David Osit and Malika Zouhali-Worrall’s latest film is a thought-provoking testimony to the empathetic power of art, examining how we process grief through technology in the twenty-first century, and the implications of documenting profound human experiences in a new artistic medium: the video game.
