Like all the best documentaries, CALL ME KUCHU introduces us to a little-known yet disturbing phenomenon, draws us into the complexities that have created it, and raises our concerns for the future.

In this case it’s the shocking homophobia that Uganda’s church, its media and ultimately its government channelled into legislation that threatened the country’s gay citizens with imprisonment or even death.

Better known as a writer and producer of shorts, Katherine Fairfax Wright teamed up with journalist Malika Zouhali-Worrall to investigate this injustice as seen through the life of the late David Kato, the first publicly gay Ugandan. His struggle to end a smear campaign – which was backed by American evangelists, among others ¬– is moving, harrowing and beautifully realised, and it also inspires us to believe that right will inevitably triumph over might, no matter how powerful the prejudice.
