Born This Way


There are more arrests for homosexuality in Cameroon than in any other country in the world. With intimate access to the lives of four young gay Cameroonians, Born This Way steps outside the genre of activist filmmaking and offers a vivid and poetic portrait of day-to-day life in modern Africa. This is a story of what is possible in the global fight for equality. (Dir. by Shaun Kadlec and Deb Tullmann, 2012, Cameroon, 84 mins., Not Rated)
