Computer Chess

In the early 1980s, a tournament between chess-playing computer programs leads the attending programmers to personal, spiritual, and existential crossroads. Shot on period-appropriate analog video cameras, this comic (and occasionally surreal) mockumentary lovingly spoofs the early days of computing while foreshadowing the encroachment of technology into modern life.
