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.
