Bobi Wine: The People’s President

Documentary (2022)
This gripping documentary charts the rise of the pop star-turned-politician seeking to end Uganda’s brutal dictatorship.
Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature, Bobi Wine: The People's President tells the story of the Ugandan opposition leader, former member of parliament, activist and national superstar musician who risks his life to fight the ruthless regime led by Yoweri Museveni. Running in the country’s 2021 presidential elections, Bobi Wine uses his music to denounce the dictatorial regime and support his life mission to defend the oppressed and the voiceless people of Uganda. In this fight, he must also take on the country’s police and military, which are not afraid to use violence and torture in a vain attempt to intimidate and silence him and his supporters.
