African Film Festival, Inc. & Doc Watchers Present:

God Loves Uganda

Directed by Roger Ross Williams   (USA / 2013 / 83min.)

As an American-influenced bill to make homosexuality punishable by death wins widespread support, tension in Uganda mounts and an atmosphere of murderous hatred takes hold.  God Loves Uganda explores the role of the American evangelical movement in Uganda, where American missionaries have been credited with not only building schools and hospitals, but also promoting dangerous religious bigotry, God Loves Uganda is a provocative and harrowing exploration of religious fundamentalism in the post-colonial world.

Followed by Q&A with Editor Benjamin Gray

One Year Lease

Directed by Brian Bolster  (USA / 2014 / 11min.)

Told almost entirely through voice mail messages, One Year Lease documents the travails of Brian, Thomas, and Casper as they endure a year-long sentence with Rita, the cat-loving landlady.

Followed by Q&A with Director Brian Bolster
