Google hosted a few of the people involved with the film Computer Chess for a screening and an "At Google" Q&A recently, which the company has now made available for viewing.

Participating in a post-screening Q&A were writer, director and editor Andrew Bujalski, producer Houston King, and actor Wiley Wiggins (Mitch Kramer from Dazed and Confused).

Here's the movie description, in case you're unfamiliar:

Set over the course of a weekend tournament for chess software programmers thirty-some years ago, COMPUTER CHESS transports viewers to a nostalgic moment when the contest between technology and the human spirit seemed a little more up for grabs. We get to know the eccentric geniuses possessed of the vision to teach a metal box to defeat man, literally, at his own game, laying the groundwork for artificial intelligence as we know it and will come to know it in the future.
