MEMORY GAMES offers a thrilling insight into the lives of four athletes from the United States, Germany and Mongolia as they compete for the title of World Memory Champion.
Their unique approaches to memorizing and recalling mind boggling amounts of information and their life stories form the basis for a visually stunning and thought-provoking documentary that also looks at how memory permeates every aspect of our lives.
Through the use of animation, we explore their striking visualization techniques and give a glimpse into a world of seemingly limitless capacity for memorization.
