Religion Doc ‘God Loves Uganda’ Set For U.S. Release

Documentary explores role of Evangelicals

Variance Films has set a U.S. release for Roger Ross Williams’ documentary “God Loves Uganda,” starting with New York City on Oct. 11.

The film explores the role of the American Evangelical movement in fueling Uganda’s turn toward biblical law and the proposed death penalty for homosexuality as religious leaders and a well-financed campaign win over the Ugandan public.

God Loves Uganda” debuted at Sundance, where Variety’s Justin Chang gave the film a positive review: “A scalding appraisal of the Christian missionary movement in Africa, ‘God Loves Uganda’ has a ferocious mission of its own: to portray American evangelicals as arrogant and deluded, yet dangerously effective in their suppression of sexual freedoms.”

The film was directed by Williams and produced by Williams and Julie Goldman. The film is a co-production from Full Credit Productions, Motto Pictures and the Independent Television Service.
