Atari: Game Over

Atari: Game Over documents the history of the video game company Atari and culminates in a dig in an Almogordo landfill to recover the million ET: The Extraterrestrial video games reportedly buried there. Using old photographs and maps to triangulate the position of the cells where Atari supposedly dumped all those old video games, archeologists battle dust storms as video game enthusiasts sit in folding chairs to watch the dig unfold. Informational and oddly gripping, Atari: Game Over attempts to salvage the reputation of the legendarily bad video game based on Steven Spielberg's film.
