Academy Award-winning filmmaker Roger Ross Williams explores the role of the American Evangelical movement in fueling Uganda’s terrifying turn towards the proposed death penalty for homosexuality. Thanks to charismatic religious leaders and a well-financed campaign, draconian new laws are winning over the Ugandan public. But the source is not Africa: these dangerous policies, and the money to back them, are being imported from some of America’s largest mega-churches – at the “front lines in a battle for billions of souls.” A 2013 Sundance Film Festival favorite. (USA, 2013, 83 min., Documentary Feature)
