Introduction to the movie, "Creation"
Eugenie C. Scott, Ph.D.
September 14, 2013
Eugenie Scott will introduce the lead-off movie, Creation at The Fifth Atheist Film Festival. Creation was directed by Jon Amiel, and stars Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly (real-life husband & wife) as Charles and Emma Darwin. The film is a partly biographical, partly fictionalised account of Charles Darwin's relationship with his eldest daughter, Annie (Martha West), as he struggles to write On the Origin of Species. John Collee wrote the script based on Randal Keynes's biography of Darwin titled Annie's Box.
Following Creation, the following will be shown:
The Film Festival, created in 2009, is the world's first film festival dedicated to showcasing feature films, documentaries, shorts and animated cinema created especially for the secular community. Whether you're an atheist, agnostic, skeptic, secular humanist, heathen, heretic, bright or just a fan of fresh, offbeat cinema that celebrates and encourages reason, critical thinking and freedom of inquiry both inside and outside of the movie theater, the Atheist Film Festival is for you.
