A look at the unforgettable world championship of memory athletes.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
You won’t believe your eyes watching this competition of memory athletes. Quickly absorbing complex data, such as random sequences of numbers, through visualization techniques – represented here through creative animated sequences – the competitors repeat it back under high-pressure conditions. The film follows hopefuls from the US, Germany, and Sweden on their way to a world championship.
