Free Film Screening: CALL ME KUCHU
Tuesday, November 19, 2013 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM (PST)
Los Angeles, CA
Please join the UCLA Center for World Health in Collaboration with UCLA's International Human Rights Law Association and UCLA's LGBT Resource Center for a free film screening of the newly released documentary - Call Me Kuchu, a film by Katherine Fairfax Wright & Malika Zouhali-Worrall with music by Jon Mandabach.
In Uganda, a new bill threatens to make homosexuality punishable by death. David Kato, Uganda's first openly gay man, is one of few who dare to publicly protest state-sanctioned homophobia while combatting vicious persecution in his daily life. Working with an idiosyncratic clan of fellow activists, including retired Anglican Bishop Christopher Senyonjo, David fights Uganda's government and tabloids in the courts, on television, and at the United Nations. Because, he insists, "if we keep on hiding, they will say we're not here."
Light refreshments will be served at 5:00 p.m. and a Q & A will follow the film.The esteemed panel of speakers will include the film's co-director, Ms. Katherine Fairfax Wright, as well as Dr. Tom Coates (UCLA's Center for World Health), Mr. John Duran (Mayor of West Hollywood) and Mr. Brad Sears (Director of the Williams Institute, UCLA).
