The Granada Theatre Presents
Queen of Katwe
In partnership with Turn The Page Uganda and Laguna Blanca School

Living in the slum of Katwe in Kampala, Uganda, is a constant struggle for 10-year-old Phiona (Madina Nalwanga) and her family. Her world changes one day when she meets Robert Katende (David Oyelowo), a missionary who teaches children how to play chess. Phiona becomes fascinated with the game and soon becomes a top player under Katende's guidance. Her success in local competitions and tournaments opens the door to a bright future and a golden chance to escape from a life of poverty.

Join former Santa Barbara mayor and film critic Hal Conklin for a selection of great stories that touch the soul and draw out the best in humanity. These stories teach about forgiveness, loving others, and loving ourselves, and provide a renewed enthusiasm for living life with compassion and grace. Drawn from the syndicated film series “Cinema In Focus,” these presentations will blend together great film with audience conversations and Q&A.
