Flock of Dodos

Directed by Randy Olson
New Video Group, 2007. 85 minutes.

A hilarious documentary that examines both sides of the controversy over the teaching of "intelligent design" in public schools, centering on the fight over the place of evolution in Kansas's state science standards. Variety described Flock of Dodos as "intelligently designed for popular appeal," and NCSE's executive director Eugenie C. Scott praised it as "a powerful defense of evolution that needs to be seen by every teacher of science." The home version includes 84 minutes of bonus features, including unused clips of a mock debate between "the world's most obsfuscating intelligent designer, Dr. Edward Sheehee, and the world's angriest evolutionist, Dr. Jonathan Girr."
