Trailer for the documentary Cameroon, Coming Out of the Nkuta.

In 1972, nearly 12 years after declaring national independence, a law came into effect in Cameroon, which made homosexuality a criminal offence that could be punished by up to five years in prison. In 2006, the local tabloid press published a list of 50 people from the upper echelons of society who were "suspected of homosexuality". This list also included half the members of the government. This was a shock for Cameroonian society. Until that time, public opinion had been clear on this taboo subject: No homosexuals existed in Cameroon! Local people explain to the camera that this "behaviour" was imported by Europeans and that homosexuals can expect to be ostracised by their family and community. This atmosphere is the backdrop to this film, in which we watch the tireless lawyer Alice Nkom, her client Lambert, and five representatives of the young homosexual community, including the activist Nathalie, who wants to open a bar where people can meet regardless of their sexual orientation.
