Call Me Kuchu Review

Image for Call Me Kuchu

Ugandan gay rights activist David Kato fights to overturn the country's brutally homophobic laws and make life easier for his gay and lesbians - or “kuchus". As this documentary shows, the price he paid for his conviction was enormous.


Damning in its condemnation of the homophobia whipped up in Uganda by fundamentalist Christians, this is an unflinching investigation into the murder of gay activist David Kato. Angrily subjective, but provocative and powerful.

As angry and unflinching a piece of documentary filmmaking as you'll see this year.
