the surrounding game - moyo picturesThe ancient game of Go is the most complex and elegant game ever discovered. Though the rules are simple enough to teach a child, the complexity that emerges has inspired millennia of study. For thousands of years, masters have passed the game down as a window to the human mind. While popular in Asia, most people have never even heard of Go in the West... until now.
THE SURROUNDING GAME follows the lives of three young Americans vying to become the first-ever Western professional players. Through an intimate portrait of these young players and interviews with the greatest Go masters of all time, the film explores the search for meaning that Go represents to its players, for whom the game is a distillation of consciousness itself.
