NYWIFT will co-present a special screening of the documentary Planeta Kirsan by Polish director Magdalena Pieta on Friday, Dec. 14, 7:30 pm, at indieScreen (289 Kent Ave. at 2nd St., Williamsburg).

The film is part of a monthly series of films by the New Generation of Polish Filmmakers, led by NYWIFT member Agata Drogowska in partnership with Eureka Media and Munk Studio, which focuses on Polish directorial debut films. Last month, NYWIFT co-sponsored New Generation’s inaugural film series, which featured the award-winning film Women’s Day, directed by Maria Sadowska.

Planeta Kirsan is a 50-minute documentary about a city’s obsession with the game of chess in the Republic of Kalmykia, one of the smallest and poorest republics in the Russian Federation. Chess City was built by Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, the first and only President of Kalmykia. There, a boy named Alekhan and his brother Amir dream of becoming World Chess Champions. The film documents their road to make their dreams come true at a major chess competition.
