No Controversy Here

In the previous edition of Video Friday, Animating a Controversy,

I had the choice between two topics that were exceptionally popular over the past fortnight: the flap over the Women's World Championship -or- the 'Queen of Katwe'. Since Disney's story of Phiona Mutesi will likely be with us for some time, let's go with the other topic.

The flap died down after a week or so, while the 'Queen of Katwe' is still gathering steam. For this edition I had a number of good Katwe clips from which to choose, including interviews with two of the movie's principals.

Entertainment.ie talks to Queen of Katwe director, Mira Nair (7:47) • '...about the production of the Disney true life tale.'

The other interview on my short list was also from Entertainment.ie: David Oyelowo talks chess and Queen of Katwe. What role does David Oyelowo play? In its page on the film Queen of Katwe, Wikipedia informs,

[10-year-old Phiona's (Madina Nalwanga)] world changes one day when she meets Robert Katende (David Oyelowo) at a missionary program.
