And Still We Rise


And Still We Rise is a moving documentary on resistance to the Anti-Homosexual Act (AHA) in Uganda. The film follows Richard Lusimbo, the researcher & documentation manager for Sexual Minorities Uganda, as he documents the struggle against the AHA. The story weaves together a history of the AHA, with personal stories recounting the widespread repression following passage of the AHA –  including the impact on the film makers / activists themselves. A story of resilience, the documentary is also a moving example of participatory documentary making.
