The Synopsis for The Surrounding Game (2016) 1080p

Go is the oldest game still played in its original form. In east Asia, it is hailed as one of mankind's greatest cultural achievements and considered both ancient art and national sport. At the very top, an elite cadre of professional Go players battles for dominance, broadcast to millions of fans - and remaining virtually unknown to the West. Now, for the first time, a small but determined band of American players enters the fray, launching their own professional system and struggling desperately to bring Go into the mainstream. Everything depends on the genius of the young competitors as they explore the endless complexities of the game. In the end, 'The Surrounding Game' is a story of obsession: a search for meaning beneath the patterns.

The Reviews for The Surrounding Game (2016) 1080p


GO See It!Reviewed bysallydewindVote: 10/10

Beautifully shot and edited, the film offers viewers a peek into the unique and highly specialized world of go. At the same time, the story is relatable to anyone who has something they are truly passionate about. The documentary's subjects are portrayed with great humor, poignancy, and warmth.

Okay documentaryReviewed bytekotekoVote: 6/10

Pretty subpar compared to AlphaGo documentary. This one follows the a tournament to find the first American pro player.

There's barely any insights to each player's lives. There's only one short scene showing one American playing in a Korean school. Nothing else much about their lives.

Powerful StorytellingReviewed byelizagmartinVote: 10/10

The Surrounding Game is a beautiful, intricate window into the secret world of Go. It gives a wonderful history of the ancient game as it follows a few brave souls trying to become the first professional players in America (and theres even a trip to Korea, to see what the inside of a competitive Go school looks like). It's so touching to watch these young kids, who share the same passion, play against each other-you can really feel how high the stakes are for them. By the end of the film, you'll want to go buy a board yourself.
