'God Loves Uganda' NYC Premiere June 25th

African film 'God Loves Uganda' from filmmaker Roger Ross Williams premieres in NYC.


Last month OKA interviewed filmmaker Roger Ross Williams to discuss his first full-length feature, God Loves Uganda. Williams' uncompromising exposé of the relationship between American evangelicals and anti-gay campaigns in Uganda has been described as "the most terrifying film of the year." Tuesday June 25th God Loves Uganda makes its New York premiere as a part of BAMcinématek. To reserve your ticket, please email sean@mottopictures.com. Your name will be added to a special Okayafrica guest list, and available at the Rose Cinemas box office. Check out event details and watch the film's trailer below.
