Default Film editor working on Bobby Fischer film killed

A Terrible tragedy and a great setback for us all.

Karen Schmeer was in fact the editor of the Documentary being made
about Bobby Fischer. I just called the company making the documentary
and they confirmed that.

They have hired a new editor and the project is still going forward
although it will be delayed because of this tragedy.

Possibly she was working on this film about Bobby Fischer being made
in New York by award-winning director Liz Garbus with a million dollar
budget. Many notables from the chess world were interviewed including
Larry Evans, Anthony Saidy, Frank Brady, Susan Polgar, etc.

She worked as editor on many of Morris' other films, including "Fast,
Cheap & Out of Control" (1997) and "Mr. Death: The Rise and Fall of
Fred A. Leuchter Jr." (1999), and was editor for "Sketches of Frank
Gehry," the 2005 documentary directed by Sydney Pollack. She was
working on a film about chess master Bobby Fischer when she was
killed.


I wonder if this is the film she was working on. *Sometimes they post
films as published when in fact they're in production:


Bobby Fischer Goes to War (2010):Synopsis


There's also a book by this title from around 2004 that covers the
1972 match.
