Game Over: Kasparov and the Machine

Top of page

From the producers of Academy Award winner Bowling for Columbine comes an extraordinary feature documentary, a corporate conspiracy thriller set in the esoteric world of chess.

In May 1997, Garry Kasparov, regarded as the greatest chess player the world had ever seen, agreed to challenge Deep Blue - a hulking one-and-a-half tonne supercomputer. Played out in front of the world's media, this chess tournament and scientific experiment would stun the world.

Directed by multi-award winning filmmaker Vikram Jayanti (James Elroy's Feast of Death, The Man Who Bought Mustique), Game Over takes us on a gripping cinematic odyssey into the paranoid mindscape of a legendary chess genius, as Kasparov battles to come to terms with the machine - and the men - from IBM.
