"Kuchu" is a disturbing wake-up call to Westerners who value human rights and a moving tribute to Ugandans who risk their very lives to secure and defend those rights. It's a well-paced, very good documentary. A "must see" for anybody interested in human rights, foreign or intra-African policy, ethics in journalism, or roots of contemporary prejudice and violence. An effective catalyst for student discussion.
