The Polgar Variant
The extraordinary story of three Hungarian-Jewish sisters who were raised to be chess masters in Communist Budapest of the 1970s. Their father, driven by his educational vision, determined their destiny before they were even born. László Polgár believed that "Geniuses are made, not born," and he set out to prove it.

Yossi Aviram (2014, Israel, 68 min) (more)REGISTER
