Bobi Wine: The People's President

At great risk to both the filmmakers and its subjects, first-time directors Moses Bwayo and Christopher Sharp document the gripping and politically-charged story of Bobi Wine’s fight for democracy. Co-produced by Christopher Sharp and the UK’s John Battsek, and with music from British composer Dan Jones, this enlightening and compelling film was co-produced by London-based Southern Films.





From the slums of Kampala to becoming one of the country's most adored stars, Bobi Wine began to use his music to call out corruption, going on to become an Independent Member of Parliament against President Museveni, a tyrannical ruler who had clung to power since 1986. Bobi and his wife Barbie choose to risk their lives in trying to defend the rights of Ugandan people, but the state stopped at nothing to silence their cause.
