Brooklyn Castle Panel Discussion

It has been a decade since the release of Brooklyn Castle, and it's time to catch up with the school's chess community and the students that were featured in the award-winning documentary that tells the story of the champion chess team from I.S. 318 in Brooklyn, New York.

What has chess meant to the students who were profiled in the film? How has the teaching of chess changed over the last decade? What challenges does the school team face a decade later?

Join our panel discussion to learn about the lives of the students and educators featured in the film including Elizabeth Spiegel, Alexis Paredes, Justus Williams, Pobo Efekoro, Rochelle Ballantyne and John Galvin as they reflect on the films impact a decade later and answer your questions about chess and education.
