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.
Plot: Born from the simplest rules, the ancient game of Go is the most complex and elegant game ever discovered. For thousands of years, masters and disciples have passed the game down as a window to the human mind. Now, for the first time, a group of Americans enter the ring, in search of a prodigy who will change the game forever.

Interesting characters at an interesting time for the game
The look at Go historically and in Asia introduces you to the game well, and shows you the cultural heights the game can reach, something which helps lend importance to the documentary’s main narrative: the tournament to decide America’s first professional Go players.
Personally, I enjoyed the way the film followed the three American players, which was certainly not flattering, but showed them as very human and with their own philosophies and worries in life. And these are the top players in America, devoted to what was (until the events depicted in the documentary) a wholly amateur pursuit in their country — certainly some interesting characters.
First movie of its kind; trailblazer for the Go community
Just finished. truly a groundbreaking thing to happen for the go community, the making of this movie. im sure it will start changing how people see this game.
I play online Go and real Go all the time, and I think the idea of professional american players will help Go a long way to inspiring others to follow in their footsteps. Also, that cameo from a certain legendary player was amazing.
This is truly a film that was a long time coming, and one that took so much effort and love to make that even a non-Go player will be able to appreciate it! I strongly urge you all to watch this movie now!
