Queen of Katwe

As part of HerStory we will be celebrating female activists with some amazing outdoor screenings at the fabulous Eastbury Manor House, ahead of our women & activism documentary.

On the 26th August we will be screening the Queen of Katwe.

Queen of Katwe is a 2016 American biographical sports drama film directed by Mira Nair and written by William Wheeler. Starring David Oyelowo, Lupita Nyong’o, and Madina Nalwanga, the film depicts the life of Phiona Mutesi, a Ugandan girl living in a slum in Katwe. She learns to play chess and becomes a Woman Candidate Master after her victories at World Chess Olympiads.

Tickets will be available on Eventbrite.
