Writer/director Craig Guiboche (CBC New Indigenous Voices) and producer David Zellis (NSI Totally Television) have produced a new short for CBC Now or Never about fighting gamer and new Winnipegger Eumir Enriquez.


Growing up in the Philippines, Eumir could often be found at his neighbourhood arcade. Playing fighting games was his way of connecting with others and building friendships.


After moving to Winnipeg and searching high and low for friends that shared his love of fighting games, Eumir had almost given up. But then a coworker invited him to join a community of local enthusiasts known as Chip Damage. Craig and David’s film tells that story.


Read more and watch the film on CBC Now or Never.
