The Unbelievers follows renowned scientists Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss across the globe as they discuss the importance of science and reason in the modern world and encourage others to cast off antiquated religious and politically motivated approaches toward important current issues. Blasphemous to some, heroic to others - the weight of their message is impossible to ignore.
Presented in the style of traditional “rock-n-roll tour films”, The Unbelievers joins Dawkins and Krauss (both on-stage and off) as they speak to sold-out stadiums and halls across three continents while contending with fans, groupies, critics, debate-partners and interviewers; to say nothing of religious extremists bent on stifling their pro-science/pro-reason message.
The film also includes interviews with celebrities (Cameron Diaz, Ricky Gervais, Woody Allen, Stephen Hawking, Sarah Silverman, Bill Pullman, Werner Herzog and others) who support the work of these controversial speakers.
This very special Canberra premier of the film will feature an introduction and post-show questions and answer session with co-star Lawrence Krauss, and Directors Gus and Luke Holwerda.
