Double Dummy: Virginia Film Festival Premier
November 11, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Virginia Film Festival, November 9th-12th, will premier Double Dummy, a film by Lucas Krost.
When players of the famous 17th century card game bridge play as if they know how the entire hand has been dealt, it is referred to as a double dummy. This American pastime comes to life in this documentary as it combines the game’s cherished history with its hopeful present and future. For a long time, bridge has been perceived as a game exclusively for an older generation, but in recent years there has been a spike of young bridge players, featured especially in the 2012 World Youth Team Championships. This competition unfolds excitingly as highly talented players compete and make lasting relationships through the esteemed card game. Discussion with producer John McAllister
