    Queen of Katwe – Discussion Guide (Uganda)

    From the largest slum in Kampala, Uganda, to an international chess competition in Moscow and then to the world stage, the trajectory of the life of Phiona Mutesi has been stunningly swift. Her mentor Robert Katende had developed a chess program at a nearby mission, and he soon recognized that her quick and agile mind was especially adept at grasping the intricacies of the “Game of Kings” in spite of her being only nine years old. Through her persistence and enthusiasm, Phiona eventually became a chess champion, gained an education, and bought a home for her mother. Based on a true story, the film Queen of Katwe tells much about the life of poor people living in harsh conditions, but it also shows how hard work, courage, and the help of a good friend can transform a life. This discussion guide can be used to deepen and broaden students’ understanding of this inspiring film.
