‘God Loves Uganda’ Gets Theatrical Release Following Sundance

God Loves Uganda,” the feature-length documentary which explores the evangelical influence of America’s Fundamental Christian right on the African way of life, gets large push to theaters from Variance Films.

The film follows American and Ugandan religious leaders fighting “sexual immorality” and missionaries trying to convince Ugandans to follow Biblical law and ignore their anti-gay laws.

Filmmaker and director Roger Ross Williams exposes the missionary movement in Uganda as an outgrowth of Africa’s colonialist past, and a twenty-first century crusade to recreate a continent of people in the image and likeness of America’s most extreme fundamentalists.

Initially released at the Sundance Film Festival January 18, 2013, “God Loves Uganda” opens in North America Oct. 11 in New York City, expanding to more theaters in 2014.
