8bit Generation is a documentary focused on the home computer explosion and the role of Commodore in the personal computer revolution. 8bit is a generation of machines, both computer and videogames, based on 8bit microprocessors dating from the early ‘70s to the late ‘80s, often defined by blocky graphics, few colours, simple sounds, and weird case designs. 8bit is a generation of young entrepreneurs, engineers, visionaries, dreamers, and geniuses who ended up changing the world we live in, starting one of the most important revolutions in humanity’s history. 8bit is a generation of teenagers that were exposed to the influence of those wonderfully primitive machines, and learned firsthand what a computer is, how it works, and how it can change your life… And never forgot.
