‘Poetic … stirring … visually arresting.’ – The Hollywood Reporter, US
This Indian, Grierson-nominated documentary, which follows the moving, fascinating and soulful story of three visually impaired chess players over a three-year period, is currently only available to watch in the UK through ourscreen at Picturehouse Cinemas.
British filmmaker Ian McDonald’s feature-length debut follows in the footsteps of another celebrated cult sports documentary, HOOP DREAMS, by looking beyond its ostensible subject to examine, without ever being patronising, the struggles that the disadvantaged face in trying to succeed in competitive sports.
