A high society wedding, a boxing club, a beauty salon, a school for survivors of the civil war: these are a few of the many places in Uganda discovered in Kimi Takesue's feature documentary, WHERE ARE YOU TAKING ME.
Employing an observational style, this contemplative documentary reveals multifaceted portraits of Ugandans in both public and private spaces. The film travels through Uganda, roaming the vibrant streets of Kampala and the rural quiet of the North, to reveal a diverse society where global popular culture finds expression alongside enduring Ugandan traditions. Throughout the journey, WHERE ARE YOU TAKING ME asks us to consider the complex interplay between the observer and the observed, and challenges our notions of both the familiar and exotic. WHERE ARE YOU TAKING ME offers unexpected images of a complex country, encouraging us to abandon pre-conceived notions of where we are going and what we will find.
