R U THERE's channel



Chosen for the selective program of the International Film Festival in Cannes, – Un Certain Regard – , ‘R U There’ is charactarized by its slow pace that is countered by the fast tracks of online gaming by a professional gamer. The brooding film does an excellent job of capturing how videogames are a part of our worldwide lexicon, and how they offer, for some people, a comfortable place to communicate.
