The Surrounding Game (director in person)

Opens Aug 28, 2017

Though the rules of the ancient game of Go are simple enough for a child, the complexity that emerges has inspired millennia of study. This new documentary follows three young Americans vying to become the first Western professional players. Through an intimate portrait of these young players and interviews with the greatest Go masters of all time, the film explores the search for meaning that Go represents to its players, for whom the game is a distillation of consciousness itself. Co-director Cole Pruitt, a Columbia native, will participate in Q&As.
