Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss tour US with “The Unbelievers”
Washington DC (March 2014) – New York Times bestselling authors Richard Dawkins (The God Delusion) and Lawrence Krauss (A Universe From Nothing) will tour the United States in April to screen their new documentary film, “The Unbelievers”, directed by Gus Holwerda. The world-famous evolutionary biologist and theoretical physicist will also answer audience questions.
Dawkins and Krauss will be joined in Las Vegas by magician Penn Jillette of Penn & Teller. Filmmakers Gus Holwerda and Luke Holwerda of Black Chalk Productions will also appear throughout the tour.
The film is a road trip documentary that follows Dawkins and Krauss as they make stops around the world, from Australia to New York, to speak out for reason and science. “One of the most remarkable things about making The Unbelievers,” said Gus Holwerda, “was to reveal the Richard Dawkins that you don’t see in public life. He can be a bulldog at the podium when it comes to defending science and reason, but in the film we see him for the person he is, extremely warm and personable.”
"Lawrence Krauss has been called 'the Woody Allen of Physics," Holwerda contiunes, "and it is deserved. He has a genuine wit and sense of comedic timing that are rare among science popularizers today."
Several celebrities appear in the film to support Dawkins and Krauss on their journey to promote reason and science, including Woody Allen, Stephen Hawking, Stephen Colbert, Cameron Diaz, Sarah Silverman, Bill Pullman, Werner Herzog, and Bill Maher. The movie ends with The Reason Rally, an Washington DC event in 2012 that was the largest atheist rally in history.
