Storyline

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.

Could be far better
18 September 2018 | by mchaglayanSee all my reviews

While I was watching it, I thought like "why they give so much minute to this Ben guy, he is really annoying, probably his parents filmed it" and at the credits I saw that one of the directors have the same surname. Other than that, it is pretty outdated. I guess it is filmed in 2012 but broadcasted in 2018, weird. It would a really great documentary if it wasn't like sleeptalking of Ben for half an hour.
