GOD LOVES UGANDA

Although Uganda’s President Museveni claimed he was signing the country’s controversial anti-gay bill into law to fight liberal cultural imperialism by the West, the reality is that he may have actually signed the bill into law as a direct result of just the opposite: conservative cultural imperialism by America’s Christian Right. Possible? Academy Award-Winning Director Roger Ross Williams explores exactly that theory in his documentary GOD LOVES UGANDA at the American Documentary Film Festival which opens on Thursday, March 27th and continues through Monday, March 31st, 2014.

 The Academy Award®-short-listed film in the Best Documentary Feature category is one of the year’s most talked-about and critically-acclaimed films.  Oscar® winner Roger Ross Williams provides a powerful exploration into the evangelical campaign to change African culture with values imported from America’s Christian Right. The film follows American and Ugandan religious leaders fighting what they consider “sexual immorality,” and missionaries trying to convince Ugandans to follow Biblical law. Director Roger Ross Williams plans to attend the American Documentary Film Festival screening of GOD LOVES UGANDA.
