Movie Of The Month; Sneaky Pick

There are scoops and then there’s this. Urban Legend Kampala has just landed on the first one sheet of a movie touted as ” different”. The story details are being kept under wraps, but every indication suggests that the director was NOT influenced by the Walk-To-Work thing that had a politician eat rubber.

Synopsis
The story revolves around… actually, no, it doesn’t revolve at all, it “involves” Beyonce, a housefly that has been brought up thinking she is a human being. She eats with the family and goes to bed with them. It’s all a girl nearing the end of her 20 something days could ask for.

The eve of the Uganda Walk-To-Work protest begins normally for her. Despite her parents’ protests, she wants to make a difference and she intends to walk to work in a show of solidarity with those that are peeved about the rising commodity prices. Even if this shit doesn’t affect her, she wants to do something.

Then something extraordinary happens… her feet refuse to touch the ground…

Mid-Week Movie Madness | Part the 1st

Three men wanted to go to work, but they had no fuel. They had jobs, but they didn’t have the means with which to get to them. Then, one day, they had a brilliant idea. An idea that many before them had executed for lack of options, lack of transi… possibly a lack of sense. This is the story of one of those men….

Once Swan’s Go Black…

Bleak Swan

When Kina-U goes to West

This is a story of love lost, love found, lust, sex, crime, fist fights, food fights, standing-in-line-at-the-supermarket, buying-newspapers-from-Abdu and eating-mama-Nakka’s sabulenya. The plot also lightly touches on the theme of beef. Not Lady Gaga beef, think more 2Pac/Biggie beef.

The movie stars our very own Juliana Kamonyozi acting as a Swan that has no feathers and cannot fly (but is fly) and Irene Nibiru, acting as her would-be bosom buddy who turns around and stabs her in the bosom. Rather back. ‘Black Swan’ was originally supposed to be called ‘White Swan’ but the casting crew were so impressed that Kamonyozi could walk on tip-toe the whole movie and also, she demonstrated that she could do the MJ crotch-grabbing, ‘aouw’ screaming, moonwalk thing.

The story: Irene and Juliana both want the same spot in a play called ‘That’s not life, Mwattu’. So they dance on their tip-toes to each prove who the better choice for the part is.

A little East African country sets the stage for this tale of power, greed, a rivalry spanning generations…  and old age.  Warren is a guy just trying to make things work, but his rival doesn’t believe in that shit. He has tasted power and he knows how it corrupts…and it tastes nice too.

Enter Jaberi, a man that has watched the relationship turn sour over time and now wants a piece of the pie.
