Watch: Director and Star of 'Brooklyn Castle' Promote Indie Doc on 'The Daily Show'

"Brooklyn Castle," the acclaimed documentary revolving around how chess acts as an unlikely inspiration for an inner-city school, found a way to expand on the already positive word of mouth garnered following its October 19th release. Last night the film's director, Katie Dellamaggiore, and one of its stars, Pobo Efekoro, sat down on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" to discuss the film. The appearance of a relatively small documentary on ratings and popularity giant Stewart should go a long way to expanding interest in the film.

"Brooklyn Castle," currently in theaters, holds a B+ average on Criticwire. The full interview with Dellamaggiore and Efekoro is below.
