Glory to the Queen

The film ‘Glory to the Queen’ was directed by Tatia Skhirtladze last year, and is focused on the two Georgian Women’s World Champions, Nona Gaprindashvili and Maia Chiburdanidze, and two of the leading contenders, Nana Alexandria and Nana Ioseliani. As is well-known, Georgia dominated women’s chess from 1962 to 1991. Chessplayers can use the Vimeo link and password below to watch the film in advance of the Zoom meeting (link also below) on Thursday, when the director will answer questions on the film and Nana Alexandria (certainly) and Nona Gaprindashvili (possibly) will also be on Zoom to answer questions …
