Recording of Miyamoto and the Machine (a documentary about KenKen): film screening and panel discussion with Robert Fuhrer, Aaron Kaswell, Noriko Yoshimura, and Ellie Grueskin

This is a recording of a live-streamed event that took place on Monday, February 1, 2021.

Appropriate for all ages.

When does a KenKen puzzle unfold as a story?  When it is handcrafted by KenKen's inventor, Japanese elementary-school math teacher Tetsuya Miyamoto!  The new documentary Miyamoto and the Machine recounts KenKen's creation story and explores how the puzzles produced for mass consumption — by a piece of software called the Kenerator — differ from those Miyamoto constructs.  An exclusive screening of the full-length (40-minute) version of the film will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Robert Fuhrer, President of KENKEN Puzzles LLC; math teacher and KenKen enthusiast Aaron Kaswell, who is featured in the film; Noriko Yoshimura, former international editor for the original publishers of KenKen in Japan and NY project manager for KenKen worldwide; and Ellie Grueskin, the 2017 KenKen International Student Champion.  Ellie co-authored the KenKen for Beginners book and is currently an undergraduate student at Harvard University studying Economics and Statistics.
