The Outfest film festival is an annual event where filmmakers show movies that, according to the event's organizers, promote equality and understanding. One of this year's most talked-about films is "God Loves Uganda," which profiles American evangelicalism and anti-homosexualism in Uganda. 

Filmmaker Roger Williams traveled to Uganda expecting homophobia in the religious community there, but found out the issue was much more complex. He joins the show to talk about his discoveries.
