How do ku-ng-fu punches, copyright infringement and clothes pegs lead to the galvanization of the Ugandan film industry? VJ Sammy, the Movie Doctor, and VJ Sammy, the Master, shows us how.

VJ Ronnie translates pop films from Korean kung-fu punches into Ugandan language and popular culture with a shrewd combination of drama, shacks and clothes pegs to hundreds of audience members in the underbelly of Kampala. The Movie Doctor investigates the galvanization of Uganda’s cinema through the eyes of the cultural and linguistic interpreter, VJ Ronnie.
