These are two films that LA Weekly said were must sees. In reading the breakdown of the movies they got our attention so we wanted to highlight them here.
1. Call Me Kuchu, directed by Katherine Fairfax Wright and Malika Zouhali-Worrall, jumps right into the fray of Uganda‘s media- and government-sanctioned homophobia. There are some very intense stories in this documentary such as a lesbian’s “corrective” rape.
2. Sun Kissed, directed by Maya Stark and Adi Lavy, is about the struggle of Dorey and Yolanda Nez, two Native American parents, to figure out how their children were both afflicted with XP, a rare genetic disorder where any exposure to the sun causes skin cancer and, in some cases, death.
