Event

Out Boulder & Starz Film Festival screening of 'Call Me Kuchu'
Screening: Call Me Kuchu
Showing: Sunday, November 11, 7:30 PM
Running Time: 87 Minutes
Theater: UA Denver Pavilions 14

A powerful documentary that unfolds like a mystery, Call Me Kuchu covers two years in the life of Uganda's first openly gay man. Activist David Kato, a quietly dignified teacher, is a "kuchu," the local slang for LGBT people. He becomes the lightning rod for a legislative effort to outlaw all homosexual actsa law that would make them punishable by death. Religion plays a central role in the fight. Hate groups are funded by American fundamentalist Christian organizations. The Ugandan church allies with the anti-gay movement, going so far as to rebuke LGBT advocate Anglican Bishop Christopher Senyonjo. A sensationalist newspaper takes up the cause, carelessly outing people, gay and not, putting them at risk for attack, while the frankly homophobic editor claims, with the fervor of a missionary, that he is being directed by God to rid Uganda of homosexuals. When Kato is brutally murdered, his supporters and their fierce opponents square off at his funeral in a heartrending shouting match. Kato's spirit lives on, as others courageously take up the mantle of his work with the same gentle but firm determination.


Co-directors Katherine Fairfax Wright and Malika Zouhali-Worrall won the 2012 Teddy Award for best documentary on LGBT issues at the Berlin Film Festival.
