Wednesday Chess Chat with Brooklyn Castle Director Katie Dellamaggiore

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,

Here's another nice feature on the chess movie Brooklyn Castle. So aptly does Stefany Tomas write in the Austin Chronicle that "A two-hour documentary about a chess team sounds like a one-way ticket to snoozeville, however, Brooklyn Castle is the exact opposite. Katie Dellamaggiore was definitely onto something when she decided to make a film about Brooklyn’s Intermediate School 318’s competitive chess team." You can read the full article at the link and watch these nice videos - trailer and nice interview with director of the chess movie Katie Dellamaggiore.
