"Born This Way" Brings LGBT Plight to Human Rights Watch Film Festival

By StudentFilmmakers.com
posted Jun 7, 2013, 15:09

What: BORN THIS WAY, powerful documentary on plight of Gays and Lesbians in Cameroon, is part of prestigious Human Rights Watch Film Festival lineup.

When: Human Rights Watch Film Festival, BORN THIS WAY screenings June 21/22. For more information, click here: http://ff.hrw.org/film/born-way.

Where: New York City

Who: Cameroonian LGBT Activist/Lawyer Alice Nkom and filmmakers Shaun Kadlec and Deb Tullmann

WhyBorn This Way is a documentary examining the plight of gays and lesbians in the Central African nation of the Republic of Cameroon. It made its premiere as an Official Selection of the 2013 Berlin International Film Festival. Cameroon, according to Human Rights Watch, imprisons more people for homosexuality than any country in the world.

Directed and produced by Shaun Kadlec and Deb Tullmann (FIRST AND LOVELISS), BORN THIS WAY follows Cedric and Gertrude, two young Cameroonians, as they move between a secret, supportive LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community and an outside culture that is intensely homophobic.  Set in the capital city of Douala, which is relatively safe for gays and where activists, including Cedric and Gertrude, have built "Alternatives - Cameroun," a center to protect the LGBT community against homophobic violence, the film also tells the story of heroic lawyer Alice Nkom (pictured here), who tirelessly fights for their legal representation.
