Click Here To Play is inspired by a true story. At the beginning of 2019, my partner was scammed in a game he had been playing for five years and lost all of his online belongings. I didn’t understand what the loss meant to him at the time. However, he spent the next month talking about it and after one particularly emphatic speech, it hit me that there was a story to tell. I made this film because as a visible minority, I know what it means to have your experience misunderstood. Through making the film, I gained insight into the gaming community and the larger impact of his loss.
