Chess Heaven on Earth???

Le Café Pi

This is a mini-documentary about Café Pi, the only chess café in Quebec and maybe Canada. It's owned and run by Arpad Kiss and his daughter Vanessa. This July, 2011, the café is celebrating it's 10th anniversary.

I worked here part-time for a couple months and I grew quite fond of all the regulars and everyone I worked with. I thought it would make a great subject for my first shot at making movies.

I hope you like it!
