Queen of Katwe- Family Friendly Movie

February 26, 2:00 pm

Living in Katwe, a slum in Kampala, Uganda, is a constant struggle for 10-year-old Phiona, her mother Nakku Harriet, and her younger family members. She and her younger brother help their mother sell maize in the market. She also helps care for her baby brother. Her world changes the day she meets Robert Katende at a missionary program. Katende coaches soccer and teaches children to play chess at a local center. Curious, Phiona visits the center, learns the game, and becomes fascinated with it. She becomes a top player in the group under Katende’s guidance.

In 2012, a book was published about Mutesi titled The Queen of Katwe: A Story of Life, Chess, and One Extraordinary Girl’s Dream of Becoming a Grandmaster and authored by Tim Crothers. Walt Disney Pictures optioned the rights to the book that same year with this film being released in 2016. Watch the movie trailer.

Family Friendly Film Series Sponsored by Carmichael Heating and Air Conditioning. Admission is only $1, or you can bring an item to contribute to the White Lake Food Bank.
