Game Over

2019, Documentary 50′, P: Cineworx Filmproduktion, D: Sören Senn

During his youth, L. increasingly isolated himself from the world, broke off contact with his family and spent ten years almost exclusively playing computer games. He was gaming around the clock and only had online contact with others. He lived in a small room financed by the social welfare office, fed on chips and coke and did not step outside the door for weeks.
Through the “Project Alp” he comes to a farm in the Bernese Oberland and is subjected to a radical withdrawal. Will the young man be able to escape the temptations of online addiction in the long term?
