ONCE UPON A TIME IN UGANDA
US PREMIERE Two men from opposite sides of the world come together over a shared love of action cinema. Isaac Nabwana, a director hailed as “Africa’s Tarantino,” and Alan Hofmanis, a film programmer from New York, struck a deep friendship while making films with minimal resources in the slums of Kampala. Alan sees the genius in Isaac and is compelled to bring the world’s attention to Wakaliwood, but their “bromance” is threatened as Isaac’s star rises. – Ruth Somalo
