CALL ME KUCHU
USA | DIR Katherine Fairfax Wright and Malika Zouhali-Worrall
To be openly gay in Uganda is to risk imprisonment and death. The stirring and heartbreaking Call Me Kuchu exposes the horrors of a homophobic government – its hatred fueled by right wing American evangelicals – that terrorizes the LGBT community. Yet brave men and women like David Katos, the country’s first openly gay activist, have fought back at great risk. This intimate and impassioned documentary takes us inside this life and death struggle for human rights. Whether you are familiar with Katos’s story or hearing it for the first time, you will find this a shattering and inspiring testament.
