Born This Way
Directed By: Shaun Kadlec,Deb Tullmann
Suspenseful and riveting, BORN THIS WAY had its premiere at the 2013 Berlin International Film Festival
More people are imprisoned each year for homosexuality in Cameroon than any other country in the world.
With intimate access to the lives of two young gay Cameroonians, Born This Way sketches a vivid portrait of day-to-day life in modern Africa. Lyrical imagery, devastating homophobia, glimpses of American culture and a hidden-camera courtroom drama coalesce into a story of what is possible in the global fight for equality.
It follows Cedric and Gertrude, two young Cameroonians, as they move between a secret, supportive LGBT community and an outside culture that, though intensely homophobic, is in transition toward greater acceptance.
