Brooklyn Castle

Thursday, February 21, 2013, 7:30 pm
Club B-10
$9 adults / $5 students / 10% discount for members


This riveting film centers on the most cerebral of games: chess. Brooklyn Castle (by Katie Dellamaggiore, 2012) tells the stories of five members of the chess team at I.S. 318, a below-the-poverty-line inner city junior high school that has won more national chess championships than any other in the country. Battling their opponents as well as recessionary budget cuts that threaten all extracurricular activities at their school, the students' dedication to their game magnifies their belief in the possible. Q&A with filmmaker Katie Dellamaggiore to follow.

Our Winter/Spring 2013 documentary film series, Compete!, celebrate films about winning, losing, and how you play the game. Films are shown on Thursday nights at 7:30 PM up in the club (Club B-10). Snacks and drinks are available before and during the screening. Screenings are often followed by Q&A sessions with the filmmakers. Click here to see entire film documentary series schedule.
