Ugandan film wins us accolade

A local movie has won honours at the Silicon Valley African film festival (SVAFF) 2012.
The Ugandan won the best feature film last weekend at the film festival that took place at the Community School of Music and Arts (CSMA) in the City of Mountain View located in the world’s tech capital, Silicon Valley.

The film is about Raman, an Indian survivor of Idi Amin’s regime, who is blackmailed by his Ugandan girlfriend (Becky) when he claims his father’s property.
The story of lies, love and xenophobia, brings to life the legacy of Idi Amin’s Uganda and the challenges of inter-racial relationships in a country where polarisation has created a deep mistrust on all sides.

The film made by Afri-Plus films, casts Patrick Sekyaya, Arfaan Ahmed, Edlyn Sabrina, former Miss Uganda Dora Mwima and singer Halima Namakula. It was produced by Alvin Kasule. The Senate of California recognised the Ugandan film makers with a certificate.
In the twist of events, film producer, Kasule was unable to join friends in Boston where they were waiting to celebrate the after party upon receiving the award. Kasule broke his arm at the San Jose airport in California and was rushed to hospital on a stretcher.
