Blaricum 1987: ‘Golden Dog’.
Intelligence is the power to see…
ENIGMA - what's on a grandmasters' mind - probes into the world of thinking. It visualises the sources of inspiration of Grand Master Anatoly Gantwarg, five times World Champion Draughts. An associative adventure into the desert of chaos, with the soul as the one and only guide.
ENIGMA brings us to West Africa, to where old men play the game of Yote in the sand. We visit the tomb of Baba Sy, the legendary, illiterate Senegalese draughts player. We meet the man who discovered and taught him. We witness the massive worshipping of God in the heat of the African desert.
We get to know the connection between draughts, football and life…The need to forget about logic: Intuition.
