About the film
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 our upcoming international screening tour and social action campaign.
Quote of the day: French mathematician and philosopher Blaise Pascal once wrote something to the effect of: "If I had more time, I would have made this letter shorter"(1657)

A note on my feedback:
Don't be alarmed! I had to get straight to the point and thus there is more critique than positive feedback. I still think you are all wonderful, smart and beautiful human beings, I just care more about you becoming outstanding writers than making sure you feel all warm and fuzzy after reading my critique. After all, these are drafts.
