Specifically focused around LGBT people and LGBT activists in Uganda, the documentary "Call Me Kuchu" (Uganda's gay and transgendered activists refer to themselves as "kuchus"), directed by Katherine Fairfax Wright and Malika Zouhali-Worrall, centers around the life and tragic death of David Kato, a veteran activist who spent years fighting against his country’s homophobic society.
Among other terrifying things, an anti-homosexuality bill proposing death for HIV-positive gay men is introduced and Kato is one of the few brave enough to try and stop it. Unfortunately, after courageously changing the face of LGBT rights in the country, Kato was brutally murdered.
After wowing on the festival circuit, the documentary opens in select theaters this Friday. Below, watch two clips from the film, exclusive to Indiewire.
