A documentary following a group of Warhammer 40K players from Canada as they play the regional tournament scene all the way to The Las Vegas Open, 2020.

Warhammer 40K

Forty thousand years from now, in a galaxy very, very close to home, ‘Hammer’ is a documentary following a team from Alberta, Canada, as they seek to dominate their chosen table-top war game. We follow them from the frozen prairies of Western Canada to Las Vegas, Nevada, where the world’s biggest tournament of Warhammer 40K is held. The event hosts a thousand players, all competing for the coveted ‘Las Vegas Open’ championship title. The film highlights the importance of connection and friendship, whether competing against a complete stranger or your closest buddy.
