Something frightening is happening in Uganda and it is coming from the outside. For American evangelicals, Uganda represents Ground Zero -- the opportunity to fashion an entire country in their own image. For a generation, they have been building schools and hospitals -- and instilling a religious bigotry that is chilling in its intensity. Academy Award winning director Roger Ross Williams' wide-ranging, absorbing and often shocking film takes us deep inside the missionary movement, allowing bright eyed Christians to explain their vision for Uganda. Their focus is unabashed: instilling their values in the 50% of the population who are under 15 years old. Williams interweaves the missionary interviews with a wealth of footage showing how the evangelicals' practices are tearing the country apart. From the dismantling of a successful AIDS policy to the fostering of a bill that makes homosexuality punishable by death, this is a country in crisis. CN
