Call Me Kuchu screens at Inside Out

Award-winning doc about fight for gay rights in Uganda

Call Me Kuchu, the award-winning documentary about the fight for gay rights in Uganda, is screening at Toronto’s Inside Out LGBT Film Festival on May 19. 
 
The film won the Best International Feature award at Toronto’s Hot Docs Festival and was among the top 10 audience picks at the documentary festival. 
 
“We were very keen to make a film that wasn’t just going to play well for LGBT audiences,” says director Malika Zouhali-Worrall. “It was very important for us both artistically and in terms of advocacy that the film play well and be very relateable to people who aren’t of colour or aren’t LGBT.”
 
Below is an interview with Zouhali-Worrall and co-director Katherine Fairfax Wright. For more information on Inside Out, click here.
