UHURU (f.k.a Tilted)

SYNOPSIS:  Mshale, a Mount Kilimanjaro tour guide, dreams of marrying a white woman and moving to the West. Sprite hates white people and sets out to decolonize what he deems “his mountain”. Henry and Frannie are white missionaries who claim to be Tanzanian. As the four journey up to the roof of Africa, the looming ghost of colonialism dictates who gets to reach the peak, and who gets left behind.
