Our April Screen 2 film will be Queen of Katwe...

The colourful true story of a young girl growing up in rural Uganda whose world rapidly changes when she is introduced to the game of chess. As a result of the support she receives from her family and community, she gains the confidence and determination she needs to pursue her dream of becoming an international chess champion.

'It is hard to think of a film in 2016 that has not been better cast from the first lead actors right down to the last extras.' Leigh Paatsch, Herald Sun (Australia)

'The colors and rhythms of life in the slums of Uganda are what set Queen of Katwe apart from other underdog chess movies.' Sandy Cohen, Associated Press
