Documentary [RE] Screening: God Loves Uganda, Sept. 6 2013 @ the NEST

God Loves Uganda
Date: September 6, 2013
Venue: The Nest
Time: 6.30 pm
Entry: Prior Reservation

About
A powerful exploration of the evangelical campaign to change African culture with values from America’s Fundamental Christian Right.

Description
God Loves Uganda explores the role of the American evangelical movement in Uganda, where American missionaries have been credited with both creating schools and hospitals and promoting dangerous religious bigotry. The film follows evangelical leaders in America and Uganda along with politicians and missionaries as they attempt the radical task of eliminating “sexual sin” and converting Ugandans to fundamentalist Christianity.

As an American influenced bill to make homosexuality punishable by death wins widespread support, tension in Uganda mounts and an atmosphere of murderous hatred takes hold. The film reveals the conflicting motives of faith and greed, ecstasy and egotism, among Ugandan ministers, American evangelical leaders and the foot soldiers of a theology that sees Uganda as a test case, ground zero in a battle not for millions, but billions of souls.

Through verite, interviews, and hidden camera footage – and with unprecedented access – God Loves Uganda takes viewers inside the evangelical movement in both the US and Uganda. It features Lou Engle, the creator of The Call which brings tens of thousands of believers together to pray against sexual sin. It provides a rare view of the most powerful evangelical minister in Uganda, who lives in a mansion where he’s served by a white-coated chef. It goes into a Ugandan church where a preacher whips a congregation into mass hysteria with anti-gay rhetoric.

It records the culture clash between enthusiastic Midwestern missionaries and world weary Ugandans. It features a heartbreaking interview with gay activist David Kato shortly before he was murdered. It tells the moving story of Bishop Christopher Senyonjo, a minister excommunicated, ostracized and literally spat on for being tolerant and his remarkable campaign for peace and healing in Uganda. Shocking, horrifying, touching and enlightening, God Loves Uganda will make you question what you thought you knew about religion.

Celebrating Kenya @ 50 years: Art Exhibition by Edward Njenga & Leonard Kateete, Until Dec. 31 2013 @ National Museum

Celebrating Kenya @50 with Art from Edward Njenga & Leonard Kateete

Celebrating Kenya @50 with Art from Edward Njenga & Leonard Kateete


The Nairobi National Museum is curating two art exhibitions in celebration of Kenya’s 50th Anniversary. The show is part of a series of anniversary events and exhibitions taking place in the National Museums of Kenya throughout the year.

Opening: July 30, 2013
Venue: National Museum
Time: 5 pm
Guest of Honour: Hon. Dr Hassan Wario, Cabinet Secretary, Sports Culture & the Arts

Exhibition Dates: Until December 31, 2013

Showcasing: Edward Njenga A Son’s Dedication (1962 – 2013 ceramics) and Leonard Kateete Humanity through My Eyes portraits of the traditional African Family

Celebrating Kenya @50 with art

‘A son’s Dedication’ by 91 year old Kenyan ceramist Edward Njenga is an outstanding display of miniature human forms depicting events in Kenya’s history from 1962 to current. Njenga’s ceramics are modelled around the themes of history, health, education, family and relationships, religion, recreation, sports, sustenance, communication, technology and everything human.

The focus on Ugandan artist Leonard Kateete is his almost life-size oil paintings of African communities, commissioned and owned by Nation Media Group and loaned to the Nairobi National Museum for exhibition.
Art has no boundaries; Kateete who resides in Nairobi is responsible for several magnificent murals and sculpture installations in Kenya. An original print of Tears of Freedom (1990); an expressive portrait of Nelson Mandela in oils that is a collection on display at the Mandela Museum SA, will also be on show. Humanity through My Eyes is no doubt a magnificent contribution to the preservation and presentation of the physical history of the African people through art.

The two artists will exhibit in the Cultural Dynamism Gallery and the Ecology Gallery respectively for 6 months.
The Nairobi National Museum is home to some of the most celebrated heritage collections of Kenya and the East African region.
These two exhibitions aim to serve as a major attraction and a useful source of information on Kenya’s history, art and culture.
