God Loves Uganda 
90 minutes
Director: Roger Ross Williams
Year: 2013
Country: USA

Uganda is the number-one destination in the world for American Christian missionaries. God Loves Uganda explores their influence from one extreme to the other — from building schools and hospitals, to promoting dangerous religious bigotry. As an American-influenced bill to make homosexuality punishable by death gains widespread support, tensions mount in Uganda, and a murderous atmosphere takes hold.

God Loves Uganda gives viewers unprecedented access to people at the center of the controversy, including a preacher who whips his congregation into mass hysteria with anti-gay rhetoric, enthusiastic Midwestern missionaries who clash with world-weary Ugandans, and a heartbreaking interview with gay activist David Kato shortly before his murder. Conflicting motives are revealed — of faith and greed, ecstasy and egotism — among Ugandan ministers, American evangelical leaders, and other foot soldiers of a theology that sees Uganda as ground zero in a battle for billions of souls.
