In Uganda, a new bill threatens to make homosexuality punishable by death. David Kato, Uganda's first openly gay man, and retired Anglican Bishop Christopher Senyonjo work against the clock to defeat state-sanctioned homophobia. But one year into filming and just three weeks after a landmark legal victory, David is brutally murdered. This depicts the last year in the life of a courageous man whose wisdom, achievements and memory has inspired a new generation of human rights advocates.

"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.
