Synopsis

Adapted from a magazine article about Phiona Mutesi by journalist Tim Crothers which chronicles her path to becoming an unlikely international chess champion, this is an uplifting film about aiming high and never giving up. Phiona is a young girl born and raised in Katwe, a slum in Kampala, the capital city of Uganda. Upon her introduction to the game of chess by soccer player turned missionary Robert Katende, her world is turned upside down as she discovers a world of possibilities previously unknown to her.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
