The rules of attraction and repulsion remixed for 21st century Uganda. Set in a nightclub in Kampala, this neo-noir African short shows a slice of night-life in the city of decadence, desperation and dreams.
Brian the mzungu (white man) is an embittered expatriate whose feelings about the attractive Riti are as confused as his sense of identity in postcolonial Uganda. Riti is equally ambivalent towards the troubled Brian; she senses a sensitive soul beneath his cold exterior, but is she going to put up with his arrogance long enough to find it?
Made in association with Kampala Film School, this open-ended dramatic vignette is a taster for a more ambitious project, a feature concerning the interplay of sex, race and power in urban Uganda.
Many thanks to all the participating staff and students from Kampala Film school.
