With GOD LOVES UGANDA, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Roger Ross Williams (Music by Prudence) explores the role of the American Evangelical movement in fueling Uganda's terrifying turn towards biblical law and the proposed death penalty for homosexuality. Thanks to charismatic religious leaders and a well-financed campaign, these draconian new laws and the politicians that peddle them are winning over the Ugandan public. But these dangerous policies and the money that fuels them aren't coming from Africa; they're being imported from some of America's largest megachurches.
interviews, and hidden camera footage, the film allows American
religious leaders and their young missionaries that make up the
"front lines in a battle for billions of souls" to explain their
positions in their own words. Shocking and enlightening,
touching and horrifying,
GOD LOVES UGANDA
will leave you questioning just how closely this brand of
Christianity resembles the one you think you know.
