The 33rd Annual Olympia Film Festival presents
NW PREMIERE
MAN VS. SNAKE: THE LONG AND TWISTED TALE OF NIBBLER
4:00pm

Man vs. Snake tells the story of Tim McVey (the gamer not the bomber) who in 1984, on a single quarter (and over forty-four hours of non-stop play) was the first person in history to score over one billion points on a video game. This historic accomplishment led the City of Ottumwa to declare a civic day in Tim’s honor and present him with the key to the city. Twenty-five-years later, when rumors of a higher score surface online, attributed to Italian kick-boxing champion Enrico Zanetti, it calls into question everything. Tim is forced to make a decision: either set a new world record, or risk losing his legacy forever. Now middle-aged and out of shape, Tim discovers that reclaiming the Nibbler title will not be easy. Packed with unexpected twists and turns, the film documents one of the epic achievements of the classic gaming era and proves a powerful tale of the triumph of the human spirit.

Short: BATTLESTAR ABSTRACTICA
Director: Greg Biermann

Partake as the 1980s sci-fi classic TV series is transformed into a kaleidoscopic phantasmagoria. You’ll never look at Ceylons or Vipers the same way again.
