In the American heartland, a Kansas-based evangelical group begins a campaign to import the values of Christian fundamentalism halfway around the globe to Uganda, one of Africa’s poorest and youngest countries. With stunning access, this eyeopening exposé from Oscarwinning filmmaker Roger Ross Williams examines the high-stakes culture clash by following the intersecting stories of Ugandan human rights activists, American missionaries and the followers of a radical Ugandan minister as a bill to make homosexuality punishable by death gains support in Uganda. This shocking documentary shows just what is at risk when a country is won over by extremist values. In Person: Director Roger Ross Williams.
