Now’s the chance to watch the bridge documentary everyone’s talking about! ACES & KNAVES is a tale of triumph and tears, points and partners, crime and punishment, told by world champions and mere mortals (Bill Gates among them).


The film is available to view at any time from now until the end of Sunday 30 May. A share of the proceeds of ticket sales will support the ongoing work of Bridge: A MindSport for All (BAMSA) at the University of Stirling.


Included in the ticket price is an invitation to join an online discussion about the film on Sunday 23 May at 7.30pm. In conversation with the director Jackie Paré will be bridge legend Zia Mahmood, who appears in the film, and BAMSA founder and international player Samantha Punch.

Consider watching with your non-bridge playing family or friends. Perhaps they may be curious about what you get up to when you disappear for hours on end to play cards? They are likely to see aspects of the game which surprise them, and they may even be enticed to join a taster session or start lessons.
