Chess, A School of Silence

There's plenty of quite impressive and must-watch chess-related videos at the moment. Of course, ChessVibes has the juice on the recent discovery of Fischer memorabilia, presented in vid format, while one of our RP-based readers pointed our attention to this.

And now the NY Times features an old French doco film of Marcel Duchamp. It runs for nearly an hour and comes with subtitles.

Interviewer: "The problem with this game is that I came here to ask lots of questions, but chess makes you silent."

Duchamp: "Chess is a school of silence."
