Movie Info

A high society wedding, a movie set, a beauty salon, awomen's weightlifting competition: these are a few of the many places in Uganda visited in Kimi Takesue's feature documentary, Where Are You Taking Me? Employing an observational style, Takesue travels through the vibrant streets of Kampala to the rural quiet of Hope North, a refuge and school for survivors of civil war. Where Are You Taking Me? offers multi-faceted portraits of Ugandans and their country, exploring the complex interplay between the observer and the observed. This stunningly beautiful cinematic journey challenges notions of the familiar and the exotic. Where are we going... and what will we find? -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Where Are You Taking Me?

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

"Where Are You Taking Me?" is no survey of Uganda; it's too quiet, slow and personal for that. But the film is an unusual, visually rich visit to the nation.

New York Times
Top Critic

A knowingly subjective portrait that's somewhere between Cubist travelogue and epic poetic reportage.

Top Critic

Takesue doesn't presume to tell anyone's story for him or her, but rather lets the activity on-screen speak for itself.
