An incisive and shocking film about the persecution of gay people in Uganda, where fanatical religious groups are trying to pass a bill which would make homosexuality punishable by death.
A team of documentary-makers were granted extensive access to make this award-winning film, which features frank interviews with supporters of the Anti-Homosexuality Bill and the campaigners fighting to defeat it, including the country’s first openly gay man, David Kato.
Kato championed LGBT rights tirelessly until he was murdered in a homophobic attack in 2011, and Call Me Kuchu is both a poignant memorial to the father of the Ugandan gay rights movement and a tribute to the courage of those activists continuing his work today.
