Bingo is one of the most quiet of underground phenomena: with little fuss or fanfare, bingo games rake in billions of dollars every year in church basements, community centers and small halls in both America and the United Kingdom. Bingo: The Documentary examines the history of the game and offers a close look at the kind of people who play every week, as psychologists and bingo enthusiasts debate the pros and cons of this grass-roots phenomenon. Bingo: The Documentary was shown as part of the 1999 Seattle Film Festival.
