    By holding the shot, as she so often does in this film, Takesue is encouraging audiences to take a deep, long look at things they might otherwise miss.

    The only time a subject directly addresses Takesue, it's with a doozy of a query: "Why are you taking my story to USA, New York?" The answer is as complex as the film itself, and as simple as deciding to not look away.

    Though it eventually includes landscape and wildlife, Where Are You Taking Me? is no survey of Uganda; it's too quiet, slow and personal for that. But the film is an unusual, visually rich visit to the nation.

    The documentary revels in the simple joys of finding something that captures the eye and paying attention to it.

    Takesue doesn't presume to tell anyone's story for him or her, but rather lets the activity on-screen speak for itself.
