1:00pm: Brooklyn Castle - I.S. 318 is a Brooklyn school that serves mostly minority students from families living below the poverty line. This film is the exhilarating story of five of the school's aspiring young chess players who have won more than 30 national championships, the most of any school in the country. Its 85-member squad boasts so many strong players that the late Albert Einstein, a dedicated chess maven, would rank fourth if he were on the team. 82 minutes
