:The Surrounding Game

USA, 2017, 97 min

THE SURROUNDING GAME follows the lives of several top American players, leading up to the competition to become the first Western professional. Brooklyn-raised Ben Lockhart, America’s top white player, foregoes college to join an elite Korean Go school. His close friend, Chinese-American Andy Liu, is the strongest player in North America, despite little formal training. Introverted, quirky, and deeply cerebral, Andy probes the limitations of his own mind in his quest to transcend the tedium of normal society.
