In Uganda, a new bill threatens to make homosexuality punishable by death. David Kato - Uganda's first openly gay man - and his fellow activists work against the clock to defeat the legislation while combating vicious persecution in their daily lives. But no one, not even the filmmakers, is prepared for the brutal murder that shakes the movement to its core and sends shock waves around the world.Written by
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.
