Thank You For Playing: Making A Video Game About Terminal Cancer

When Ryan Green, a video game programmer, finds out that his young son Joel has cancer, he and his wife begin documenting their emotional journey with a video game. Thank You for Playing follows Ryan and his family over two years creating “That Dragon, Cancer,” which evolves from a cathartic exercise into a critically acclaimed (Official Selection of the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival) documentary. The documentary challenges us to reexamine our own assumptions about grief, technology, and catharsis. See the trailer below.
