Visually Challenged Chess Players - Ian McDonald Documentary on Indian Chess Players

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

Hi everyone,

At the 14th IBCA Chess Olympiad for Blind in Chennai recently, British filmmaker Ian McDonald announced the completion of his documentary film Algorithms in India. The film will feature a documentary on Blind chess for the first time in India. It almost took four years to complete this unique film and is the first ever feature documentary on young blind chess players from India. 

The film is in English, Hindi, Tamil and Odiya subtitles. Talking more about the movie, Ian told journalists, "The story of the film revolves about a group of Indian boys who are dreaming to become chess masters. These boys are no ordinary boys and have only one vision to win the Champions title. Over past three years we have been making the film and our aim was to highlight the world of Blind chess in India. It also talks about the struggle, anxieties and hopes of the chess players."
