There will be a post-screening speedrun of Zelda: Breath of The Wild done by jakezsr and a Q&A with director Jane M. Wagner, live-streamed on Twitch

World-record-holding gamer Narcissa Wright loses her massive fanbase after coming out as a trans woman. To win them back, she attempts to set a new world record in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, while live-streaming every minute of her mythic quest. Drawing from an archive of more than 3,000 hours of Narcissa’s livestreams, intimate verité, and 8-bit animation, Break the Game is a moving exploration of gamer culture, the realities of online harassment, and the mental health implications of living a digital life.
