“Queen Of Katwe” directed by New Delhi born director Mira Nair will receive its European Premiere on October 9, Sunday at the Odeon Leicester Square, screening in the BFI London Film Festival`s prestigious headline gala section. The film stars Golden Globe nominee David Oyelowo, Oscar winner and Tony Award nominee Lupita Nyong’o and newcomer Madina Nalwanga, who will attend the festival with director Mira Nair.

Queen Of Katwe is the vibrant true story of a young girl, Phiona Mutesi (Nalwanga) selling corn on the streets of rural Uganda whose world rapidly changes when she is introduced to the game of chess by Robert Katende (Oyelowo) a soccer player turned missionary. As a result of the support she receives from her mother Harriet (Nyong’o), family and community, Phiona is instilled with the confidence and determination she needs to pursue her dream of becoming an international chess champion.

Mira Nair who is settled with her husband in his country in Africa says: “It makes me very proud that the European premiere of Queen Of Katwe, a film so close to my heart, and set in my hometown of Kampala, will take place at the BFI London Film Festival. I have so many fond memories of London. We are proud to be back.”

Queen Of Katwe is the seventh film directed by Mira Nair to be presented at the Festival, following Salaam Bombay! (1988), Mississippi Masala (1991), Monsoon Wedding (2001), Vanity Fair (2004), Namesake (2006) and The Reluctant Fundamentalist (2012).
