Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Apr 29th at 5:45pm for Monster Camp at the Somerville Theatre . Look for Sean wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
“A rare and fascinating glimpse into the world of live-action role playing, or LARPing, a real-life version of World of Warcraft where gamer sterotypes are simultaneously shattered and confirmed. The film examines the lives of die-hard gamers at NERO Seattle, one of 50 franchises worldwide that abides by similar principles, rules, and ideologies. For 48 consecutive hours, software engineers, department store managers, and high school students transform themselves into warriors, sorcerers, dwarves, and lizard people to inhabit a world of fantasy, chivalry, and imagination.”
