A group of boys dream of becoming ‘chess masters’, driven by a man with a vision. But this is no ordinary chess and these are no ordinary players. ‘Algorithms’, a documentary on the thriving but little-known world of ‘blind chess’’ in India, is the first film on the subject. Filmed over three years from just before the World Junior Blind Chess Championship in Sweden in 2009 to just after the following championship in Greece in 2011, the camera follows three talented boys from different parts of India, and a totally blind player-turned-pioneer who wants all blind children to play chess. It moves through the algorithms of the blind chess world, challenging the sighted on what it means to see. Going beyond sight and story, this documentary delves into the hidden realms of subjectivity. The tactile and thoughtful journey continues long after the moving images end.
