Ballet, Chess, Rats... You Gotta Watch this Young Lady!
Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012
This is some heady mix for a 16-year-old as it includes an assortment of animals, chess, ballet, school work, job at a cinema and more. Thanks to Chess Blog friend Carl Gorka for sending us this lovely video of Charlotte Dilnutt. Who's Charlotte? Play the video and find out!

Charlotte is part of a new short film by award-winning director Clayton Jacobson, in Melbourne, Australia. The film, 8K Radius, is the brainchild of Elsternwick’s Classic Cinema owner Eddie Tamir and Jacobson, best known for directing the acclaimed 2006 mockumentary Kenny, starring his brother Shane. A review of the film is up at this link. The title refers to the cinema's "catchment area"' - an eight-kilometre radius including Elwood, Caulfield and Brighton.
Charlotte plays chess at the Melbourne Chess Club - which has remained open seven days a week for over a century!
