We got to see our first movies Friday. We often do not see the most popular movies because they are not about religion. But we do see many very good films and that is the reason that we cover the Sundance Film Festival. We give our readers access to good films related to religion that they might otherwise miss. Here are some of the best from Friday's screenings.

"God Loves Uganda" -- This disturbing documentary explores the activities of extremist American Christians who are encouraging Ugandans to fight sin by criminalizing homosexuality in Uganda. The movie raises questions about the role of the missionary in foreign countries and whether missionary work is a return to the colonialism that was so harmful to African nations in the past.
