Robert Gagno – Inside the Mind of a Pinball Wizard

August 31, 2015

Robert Gagno is the top Canadian pinball player and one of the top pinball players in the world, currently ranked 6th in the IFPA. He’s also high-functioning autistic.  I’ve run into Robert at over a dozen events over the years, as well as his wonderfully nice parents Kathy and Maurizio.

A new documentary hopes to tell Robert’s story.  Check out the teaser below and consider donating to the Indiegogo campaign when it opens in September.

“Robert Gagno is one of the world’s best pinball players. He can talk at length about the minute details of pinball, and the level of precision needed to play on all styles of games. He also has autism, diagnosed by the time he was three years old. “I want to become a legend,” he says in this portrait documentary by SALAZAR. “I think you have to have a natural passion for a certain thing if you want to get good at something.” Gagno has a passion for pinball, and the film follows him as he rises up the ranks of the international circuit.”
