Filmed live at Uganda's National Theatre in 2003 prior to its critically acclaimed international tour, “Biro” is “a brilliant play,” [The Herald, Zimbabwe 2005] which candidly charts one man’s epic journey across Uganda, Cuba and America. Based on a true story, this eloquent and unflinching solo piece “has the ring of unvarnished reality, stained by tears and made bearable by laughter” [The Seattle Times 2005]. Mwine tells the story of “Biro” from his days as a soldier with the Ugandan insurgency of 1979 to his HIV positive diagnosis in Cuba to a present day jail cell in Texas poignantly illuminating the plight of Ugandans who have endured in the face of war, AIDS and dashed dreams. A 2004 New York Times Critics’ Pick, "Mwine's performance is wired, vivid and insistent" - Time Out London 2003
     From the rolling hills of Kampala to the internally displaced people's camps in Gulu, Beware Of Time is a haunting and poignant documentary, which exposes the attitudes of HIV positive Ugandans, as well as the crimes and hardships of a quiet, but brutal war ravaging the people of Northern Uganda. Traversing through the country's back roads, the filmmaker, Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine discovers conflict and contradiction as experienced by HIV positive people, comes within close proximity to rebel fighting in northern Uganda, and along the way finds himself in conversation with Amule Amin - Idi Amin's brother.
