David Oyelowo and Ben Horowitz

Posted October 1, 2016

img_1307This 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 true story of Ugandan chess prodigy Phiona Mutesi.
