Idi Amin film in production in Kampala

Saw this at BBC Africa:

The Ugandan film industry has been given a great boost by the decision to make the film of Giles Foden’s book The Last King of Scotland in the country, its actors have said.

The film, which centres on the life of Ugandan dictator Idi Amin, is currently in production in Kampala.

Uganda boosted by Amin film

Quite ironic that Uganda’s film industry is now benefiting from such a brutal dictator.

  1. It will be interesting to see how critic the movie will be in the end?
    I’m struck by the Scotophily…and why did he chose Scotish family names to give to his children instead of first names?
