Computer Chess is a film about computer chess software designers who gather to have a chess tournament one 1980's weekend ago.
Andrew Bujalski (Funny Ha Ha) writes and directs this feature about a time when technology and the human will seemed a little bit more up for the cooperation.
The cast includes Patrick Riester, Wiley Wiggins, Myles Page and the film critic for the Boston Phoenix and film studies professor Gerald Peary. The rest of the cast include assorted film editors, A.I. software designers, scriptwriters, artists and Bujalski friends and associates.
The evocative 1980's style poster for Computer Chess was designed by artist Cliff Spohn who did the cover art for the first Atari system video games.
