Documentary from National Geographic which premiered to a 10-minute standing ovation at the 2022 Venice Film Festival. The film follows the musician

Born in the slums of Kampala, Bobi Wine, Ugandan opposition leader, former member of parliament, activist and national superstar musician, risks his life and the lives of his wife, Barbie, and their children to fight the ruthless regime led by Yoweri Museveni. Museveni has been in power since 1986 and changed Uganda’s constitution to enable him to run for yet another five-year term. 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.

Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, famously known as Bobi Wine, is a musician turned politician who is the current leader of the National Unity Platform (NUP) and the People Power Movement. Bobi was born in Mpigi District in Uganda on Feb. 12, 1982. He grew up in the Kamwokya slums in the northeast part of Kampala. His mother was a nurse, and his father was a veterinarian and farmer.

Bobi is a singer, musician, actor and activist. He has campaigned for hospital sanitization, malaria prevention, refugees’ rights and children’s education. His songs are known as peaceful protest and edutainment (a mix between education and entertainment), focusing on the struggles of Uganda’s underprivileged and low-income earners and calling upon young people to join politics and change their country’s destiny. He is married to Barbara Itungo Kyagulanyi, known as Barbie, with whom he has four children.

His characteristic enthusiasm for democratic discourse and the popularity he had earned from his prior artistic and philanthropic endeavors successfully endured his transition to politics. Bobi Wine continues to lead the NUP, the largest political opposition party in Uganda and has become the main opposition leader to President Museveni’s rule.

  • BBFC rating information (may contain spoilers)


    Ugandan security forces are shown firing guns at unarmed civilians, striking people with fists, sticks or rifles, and using tear gas and pepper spray. There are also infrequent moderate references to off-screen torture.

    Threat and horror

    There is moderate threat and intensity in footage of frightened civilians being shot at or roughly arrested by police.


    There is infrequent use of strong language (‘bumbaclot’). Milder terms include ‘shit’, ‘Jesus Christ’ and ‘God’.


    During a news interview, President Museveni makes brief homophobic comments that are immediately dismissed by the interviewer.


    We briefly see photographs of Bobi Wine as a younger man posing with depictions of cannabis leaves. Drug misuse is not endorsed, however.

    Injury detail

    Occasional images of real injury detail in the aftermath of violence include blood on people’s faces and clothing, bleeding wounds, and pools of blood on the ground. There are also brief images of a dead body slumped over in a car, and another lying in a puddle of blood.
