Chess me outPerhaps you've seen it already, but in case you haven't: one of our readers pointed out to us the Italian chess documentary Chess me out - talk on board, which was posted on the internet already three years ago. Among others, Alexandra Kosteniuk, Humpy Koneru, Levon Aronian, Hikaru Nakamura, Joel Lautier, Rustam Kasimdzhanov and Anatoly Karpov are interviewed.

Full list of appearaces: Adolivio Capece, Diego Garces, Alexandra Kosteniuk, Fabio Bruno, Martha Fierro, Cicchese Gennaro, Michele Godena, Daniel Genocchi, Sabino Brunello, Roberta Brunello, Brunello Marina, Christina Hunting, Veronika Goi, Giulio Borgo, Mark Quinn, Alex Wohl, Rusudan Goletiani, Humpy Koneru, Almira Skripchenko, Elisabeth Paethtz, Patricia Vega Llaneza, Levon Aronian, Hikaru Nakamura, Joel Lautier, Rustam Kasimdzhanov, Ennio Arlanda, Giancarlo Marcotulli, Sergio Mariotti, Anatoly Karpov, Giancarlo Ciancarini, Giuseppe Scolari Cardelli, David Levy.



The documentary, also mentioned on IMDB, was created by Davide Fasolo. In an interview he declared that the idea to make it was born almost by accident.

Until then I had never worked in video and/or documentaries. At the time when the Chess Olympiad in Turin was going to take place, a friend of mine (Anna Recalde Miranda) invited me to participate in a documentary about chess.

(...)

It is a unique world, very fascinating. A world united by a common language and at the same time by people who come from all over the world, a world of migrant tournaments around the world and at the same time a world fixed on a chessboard.
