a16z Podcast: Mastering the Game (with David Oyelowo)

This special episode of the a16z Podcast is based on a Q&A from an early screening we hosted of Disney's Queen of Katwe, now in theaters. The movie --directed by Mira Nair and based on a book by Tim Crothers -- depicts the story of Ugandan chess prodigy Phiona Mutesi.

The conversation, hosted by Ben Horowitz, features actor David Oyelowo who (among other roles, previously played Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in "Selma") and plays Robert Katende, the engineer-turned-mentor who taught community sports and chess to kids in the slums of Kampala, Uganda.
