About the film
God Loves Uganda follows Evangelical leaders in America and Uganda, as well as politicians and missionaries, as they attempt the radical task of eliminating “sexual sin” and converting Ugandans to fundamentalist Christianity. Interviews and hidden camera footage give unprecedented access into the rising influence of the evangelical movement in Uganda and the dangerous repercussions of intolerance.
The film is a powerful exploration of a campaign to change African culture with values imported from America’s Christian Right. The notorious Ugandan 'Kill the Gays' bill, largely American influenced, seeks to harshen the punishment and criminalization of homosexuality.
Shocking, horrifying, touching and enlightening, God Loves Uganda will make you question what you thought you knew about religion.
