Sundance 2013: Harrowing Exclusive Poster Art for 'God Loves Uganda' Competition Doc

Roger Ross Williams’ “God Loves Uganda” will premiere in the U.S. documentary competition at the Sundance Film Festival Jan. 18 at the Library Center Theatre. And Indiewire has the exclusive first look at the powerful new poster art.

From the producers of “Buck,” which screened at Sundance in 2011, “God Loves Uganda” tells the story of how the anti-gay rhetoric of conservative American evangelicals led to the Ugandan Parliament passing a noxious and deadly anti-homosexuality bill.

Williams, who won the best documentary short subjects Oscar in 2010 for “Music by Prudence,” will be in Park City to support the film along with several of the film’s subjects. Josh Braun’s Submarine Entertainment is repping sales on the doc at the festival.

Check out the poster, designed by Casper de Boer, below, which strikingly juxtaposes a praying white Christian missionary with a young black boy whose eyes show the fear of things yet to come.
