ABOUT ON THE TABLE

On the Table is an invitation from Vancouver Foundation for people, organizations, and communities across BC to come together, share some food, and have conversations about what matters most to them.

About the Film

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 while combatting vicious persecution in their daily lives. But no one is prepared for the brutal murder that shakes their movement to its core and sends shock waves around the world. Call Me Kuchu is heart wrenching but also life-affirming, featuring a courageous cast of characters who again and again stand up to say, "this is who I am," even if it puts them in grave danger.
