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.
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.
