Join us for an exclusive interview with Andrew Bujalski, the writer and director of Computer Chess followed by a 10th Anniversary screening of the full feature film.
COMPUTER CHESS is an off-kilter comedy set during a weekend tournament for chess software programmers in the early 1980s. Shot on vintage video equipment, it transports viewers to a moment when the contest between technology and the human spirit seemed a little more up for grabs. We get to know the eccentric geniuses possessed of the vision to teach a CPU to defeat man at his own game, laying the groundwork for artificial intelligence as we know it.
Computer Chess A.I. Generated Trailer
As part of the 10-Anniversary celebration, the creators of Computer Chess thought it would be interesting to see what an A.I. generated trailer for their film would look like. The results were the twisted scenes that nightmares are made of.
