‘Thank You For Playing’ Premieres Tuesday on PBS’s POV

Last Updated by Lea Vigi on

Ryan and Amy Green faced every parent’s worst nightmare when their infant son, Joel, was diagnosed with brain cancer. But Ryan, an independent videogame developer, imagined that something larger and brighter could come out of his family’s struggle: a poetic video game that would help him share an experience so rarely discussed--raising a child with cancer. Their heroic and life-affirming story is documented in Thank You for Playing, a coproduction of POV and ITVS.

The film was directed, produced, and edited by David Osit and Malika Zouhali-Worrall.

David Osit is a documentary film director, editor, and composer, who graduated from the University of Michigan with a bachelor’s degree from the Center for Middle Eastern and North African Studies, and a master’s degree in social documentary film from the School of Visual Arts in New York.

Malika Zouhali-Worrall helped direct and was the producer of Call Me Kuchu (2012), which premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival and has screened at 200 film festivals worldwide.
