In this video, I examine a scene where Queen's Gambit dramatizes chess without dialogue, using performance, cinematography, editing, and score. While the scene centers around a game of chess, because of the technical nature of chess the filmmakers can't rely on the action on the board, the conflict and drama have to be created visually.
