Last year, I highlighted filmmaker Kimi Takesue's impressive ITVS Futurestates short project That Which Once Was

Fast-forward almost a year later, as Kimi's feature documentary project titled Where Are You Taking Me, will theatrically debut In NYC, for a 1-week run from March 2-8 at Anthology Film Archives, distributed by Icarus films.

The doc has had a prestigious film festival circuit run, premiering at the Rotterdam Film Festival, followed by the Los Angeles Film Festival (in competition), as well as MoMA's Documentary Fortnight.

Here's a synop for the 72 minute film:

Kimi Takesue’s lyrical, observational documentary takes us to the streets, shops and countrysides of post-civil war Uganda, painting a portrait of a country rediscovering its human connections in peacetime. Eschewing a journalistic discussion of wartime atrocities and losses, Takesue allows such contextual information to quietly enter the frame, as her roving camera quietly observes the negotiations, rhythms and cycles of daily life in a new Uganda.

Reviews from Variety, The Village Voice and other outlets have been strong. I haven't seen it yet, but I will when it opens here in NYC.

Check out a teaser trailer below, which gives us a gliimpse of the film's aforementioned observational doc style:
