By Matt Bish | A story about Uganda’s troubled past. A closer look at what really happened in the so-called safe houses before 1986. A family tries to flee the troubled country and they are intercepted along the way…they are to meet face to face with the notorious captain Yusuf who runs one of these units. It’s the 80’s and what he calls his unit, is a reflection of the 70’s “State Research bureau”.

    I hope that Matt Bish enters this film into film festivals in the USA and Canada. its now too late for this years Tribeca Film Festival in New York City Howeverz, there is still time for them to enter it into the Monteray Bay Film Festival – their deadline is February 11, 2011.


    Cannes would be my best bet for now and it requires that I don’t show it else where besides my country of origin. Next Year probably. Thanks Cheers
