Brooklyn Castle (Katie Dellamaggiore, 2012, 101 min.) tells the exhilarating story of the chess team at Brooklyn’s I.S. 318, a below-the-poverty-line school that has won more national championships than any other school in the country. Presented in partnership with the PBS documentary series POV. After the film, meet members of the I.S. 318 chess team and play chess.
