COMPUTER CHESS Trailer | New Release 2013


In 1980, four computer nerds engage in a weekend tournament to design unbeatable computer chess software, in acclaimed writer-director Andrew Bujalski’s funny, offbeat and nostalgic evocation of a time when contest between technology and the human spirit seemed a little more up for grabs.

The new comedy from critically acclaimed American indie auteur Andrew Bujalski (Funny Ha Ha, Mutual Appreciation, Beeswax) transports us back to a crucial moment in the wholesale computerization of our civilization. Taking place in a middle-of-nowhere motel over the course of a weekend in the early 1980s, Computer Chess chronicles a tournament for computer-programming nerds as each strives to be the first to perfect an unbeatable chess software programme. Shot on one of the earliest analog video cameras, Computer Chess wittily evokes the early days of digitalia in its very visual texture — and as it humourously and affectionately observes these eccentric geniuses as they try to teach their boxy terminals to defeat man at his own game (literally), it nostalgically celebrates a time when the contest between technology and the human spirit seemed a little more up for grabs.
