Together with AFFA (Alliance For Full Acceptance) and the Park Circle Film Society, the SHL will host a screening of the new documentary, God Loves Uganda. This takes place during Pride Week of Charleston but is unaffiliated with the Charleston Pride events.
The feature-length documentary God Loves Uganda is a powerful exploration of the evangelical campaign to change African culture with values imported from America’s Christian Right.
The film follows American and Ugandan religious leaders fighting “sexual immorality” and missionaries trying to convince Ugandans to follow Biblical law.
God Loves Uganda premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on January 18th, 2013 and has won numerous awards at film festivals so far. The film serves as a catalyst for change, through the international screening tour and social action campaign.
