Ecstasy of Order now on DVD
The film, which has won a number of film festival awards since starting on the circuit last year, has ties starting with the 1990 Nintendo World Championships and leads up to the 2010 California event that invited many of the current day Tetris champions to compete, including Robin Mihara, Jonas Neubauer and Harry Hong.
“It’s a bit surreal to see it actually happen,” 1990 NintendoWorld Champion Thor Aackerlund said of the DVD release. “I’ll always be really impressed with the spectacular amount of work and cooperation it took to get it done. It was truly a community and passion built project.”
To celebrate the release, special screenings will be taking place in Los Angeles on Monday, July 23 and in New York City on Thursday, July 26. Tickets to these screenings can be purchased here.
The DVD, available via direct order, can be purchased here. The film will also join a variety of on-demand streaming services on August 21.
“It’s an incredible story of player versus machine, himself and herself and each other,” Tetrischamp Ben Mullen said. “It charts the stories of the best Tetris players in a manner which is truthful, exciting and heart-pounding at times.”
