An “artificially intelligent comedy” set over the course of a weekend tournament for
chess software programmers circa 1980, Computer Chess transports viewers to a
nostalgic moment when the contest between technology and the human spirit
seemed a little more up for grabs — back when the machines seemed clumsy and
we seemed clever.
Festivals: Sundance Film Festival, Berlin Film Festival, SXSW
US Distributor: Kino Lorber
