Filmmaker Andrew Bujalski will discuss his film Computer Chess with 2014 Biennial curator Stuart Comer. Computer Chess transports viewers to an earlier moment in technology—a chess tournament in 1980 where brilliant, but socially awkward, computer scientists test their programming and logic skills in a tournament pitting bulky computers against one another. Bujalski is also known for films including Funny Ha-Ha and Mutual Appreciation.
