Brooklyn Castle

I could be the last chess blogger still standing who hasn't done a post on Brooklyn's I.S. 318, so it's high time I jumped on the bandwagon.

Brooklyn Castle Official Trailer #1 (2012) - Chess Documentary Movie HD (2:30) • 'Amidst financial crises and unprecedented public school budget cuts, Brooklyn Castle takes an intimate look at the challenges and triumphs facing members of a junior high school's champion chess team.'

On top of being featured in its own documentary, the school has been written up in major New York periodicals. • At a Brooklyn School, the Cool Crowd Pushes the King Around (nytimes.com) • I.S. 318's Crowning Achievement (wsj.com) • Mike checks IS 318 chess champs, tells them he is 'really impressed' (nydailynews.com); that's Mayor 'Mike' Bloomberg. • IS 318 Chess Team (is318chessteam.com); the official site?
