A Beautiful Film
22 July 2012 | by See all my reviews

Call Me Kuchu is a beautiful documentary that explores the struggles of the LGBT community in Uganda, a country where homophobia is rampant and violence against homosexuals is all too common. CMK is a story of courage and love. In the face of mounting physical threats, a few Ugandan's are willing to stand up for what they believe in, even if it means harm. While the film centers around the rights of the LGBT community in Uganda, the story's underlying dynamics are packed with parables that can be applied almost anywhere. Call Me Kuchu will more then likely leave you with tears, so I'd recommend bringing tissue into the theater.
