Wednesday, April 24
BROOKLYN CASTLE
Directed by Katie Dellamaggiore
2012, USA, 101 minutes, documentary

Meet the Filmmaker: Director Katie Dellamaggiore will be present to discuss her film.  The big brain-little bodied chess champions of Intermediate School 318 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn are a remarkable, funny, inspiring and sometimes devastating group. We meet a multi-cultural group of boys and girls and learn how and why they became conquerors. Though these chess-geeks are the heart and soul of the film, at a higher level it looks at politics, pedagogy and their intersection. A mash note to its young subjects and their dedicated teachers. 2012, USA, 101 minutes, documentary

"See it, and I dare you not to care about what happens to these kids, these Yankees of chess."  Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

"As inspirational academic stories go, it doesn't get much better than this."  Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
