Ecstasy of Order: The Tetris Masters is a feature length documentary that captures the greatest world record Tetris players as they prepare for the Classic Tetris World Championship in Los Angeles.

Tetris is based on the seemingly simple task of arranging seven different shaped blocks ('Tetrominos') to form and clear horizontal bars, at an increasingly frantic pace.

Like Pac-Man and Super Mario Brothers, almost everyone has played this classic computer game at one time or another.

With a surprising and often moving intimacy, the film follows a group of disparate players as they compete for the title of 'Tetris Master'. From the days of Thor Aackerlund's historic victory at the 1990 Nintendo World Championships to the present day and Harry Hong's perfect 'Max-Out' score, this documentary expertly chronicles over twenty years of Tetris Mastery.
