Don’t miss the Frameline Film Festival Centerpiece Screening of this moving film, Call Me Kuchu:
In Uganda, a new bill threatens to make homosexuality punishable by death. David Kato – Uganda’s first openly gay man – and his fellow activists work against the clock to defeat the legislation while combating vicious persecution in their daily lives. But no one, not even the filmmakers, are prepared for the brutal murder that shakes the movement to its core and sends shock waves around the world.
“An urgent story, intelligently and poignantly rendered, honoring the life and courageous example of an everyday hero while exposing shocking human rights violations. Its message resonates globally and issues a call to action.” - The Teddy Jury, Berlin International Film Festival 2012
