Posted on February 20, 2014

Get ready for the next film in our 2013-2014 Doc Soup season! The Unbelievers will show on Wednesday, March 5, at 7 p.m. at Cineplex Eau Claire.

In The Unbelievers, we follow some of the world’s most renowned scientists, Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss, as they travel the world preaching about the importance of science and reason in the modern world. Filmmaker Gus Holwerda follows these “rock stars of reason” as they show how sensitive and provocative ideas can be discussed respectfully and with intellectual rigour. The Unbelievers also brings some of the world’s best known public figured to the screen, and features a long list of celebrity interviewees and influential public intellectuals, including: Ricky Gervais, Stephen Hawking, Sarah Silverman and Werner Herzog.
