Call me Kuchu manages to simultaneously convey the horrific violence and injustice facing Uganda's LGBT community, and the resilient, lighthearted spirit of the individuals within it. The film's beautiful cinematography and skillful storytelling bring to light issues of poverty, fear, religion, and humanity. I continue to talk about this film with my friends and family since seeing it over a month ago. One of the best things you can do to combat the complicated and tragic circumstances that homosexuals face in Uganda, or for that matter in our own country, is to see this film and encourage others to do the same!
