Storyline

A high society wedding, bustling city streets, a center for former child soldiers, a nightclub full of music and laughter: these are the many faces of today's Uganda, as wonderfully captured by filmmaker Kimi Takesue. Whether exploring the pulsating energy of the city or contemplating quiet moments in the country, her artful camera compositions and the lyrical pacing of the film allow us to truly engage and process the foreign land on our own terms. Documenting Uganda while it deals with day-to-day realities and the aftermath of its civil wars, Takesue, well aware of her perspective as an outsider, strives for simple, unadorned honesty. Employing a largely observational style, Takesue allows the sight and sounds-and the people-of Uganda to speak for themselves. Usually the people she records simply ignore the camera, but when someone does engage-whether it's a group of school children clamoring for their moment in front of the lens or a young man asking the title question-the barriers...

Amazing Film... Don't miss it.
20 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The title of this documentary tells it all. It's beautiful and it's contemplative and it has something for everyone to experience. Great job... Highly recommended. But you have to be willing to go with the film and let it take you. Once you do, you will be glad you did. The camera work is amazing. The people we are introduced to are amazing. And while the film is quiet, it is definitely stirring and provocative. I was moved many times during this film. I felt like I was there watching everything that was going on. The way the film flows just takes you over. I can't say enough about this film without going overboard. Well done.

Peace.
