Bad Black has got enough reasons to be bad. After her father is killed during a bank robbery with which he tried to provide his familiy, and her mother gets a bullet through her head in the streets, young Black starts terrorizing the entire neighborhood with her dangerous gang. Until she is confronted by a white doctor Ssali, with the help of tough street kid named Wesley Snipes. What follows is incredible action with motorcycle chases, prison riot and explosions in the slums of Wakaliga in Ugandan Kampala, where even the real Wesley Snipes would shit his pants. In glorious low budget of course.
You haven't seen anything like that for sure. Shot in the ghettos of Uganda's capital city, Bad Black is the latest film among more than 30 which were produced in Wakaliwood, home of »the best of da best movies«. Such an enthusiasm is unseen. Home made rifles, machine guns and even a helicopter are literally from trash. Not to mention special digital fx… But don't be fooled, this film has more heart, action and humor than most of the Hollywood blockbusters. All this comes with the narration in the tradition of Ugandan film storytelling, which reveals and comments this mayhem of a film, jokes, cheers and encourages the protagonists of the film.
