Computer programming, young geniuses, chess, and the ineffable mumblecore-stylings of director / writer Andrew Bujalski, in the black-and-white comedy entitled Computer Chess.

More official info about the film can be read as follows:

“Set over the course of a weekend tournament for chess software programmers thirty-some years ago, COMPUTER CHESS transports viewers to a nostalgic 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 metal box to defeat man, literally, at his own game, laying the groundwork for artificial intelligence as we know it and will come to know it in the future.”
