Friday, March 29, 2013 - 7:00pm
Ian McEwan, Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss,

Join the Origins Project at ASU for an evening of science and creativity for the kick off of the Origins Stories weekend.  The evening will begin at 7:00pm with an exclusive test screening of a new feature film documentary, The Unbelievers, starring scientists Lawrence Krauss and Richard Dawkins, with contributions from noted filmmakers, actors, and writers including Woody Allen, Cameron Diaz, Ricky Gervais, Ian McEwan, and Werner Herzog. Audience members will be invited to provide comments and feedback after the screening.

Following the film, the evening will focus on a live panel discussion featuring Booker Prize winning writer Ian McEwan, Lawrence Krauss, Richard Dawkins, and two special guests who appear in the film including a very special guest star, as they discuss the importance of raising these issues broadly for the public in a film format.

Timely and controversial, the film and discussion will be sure to ignite a fiery debate about the place of scientific and reason-based discussion within our larger society. We look forward to seeing you there!

A book signing will follow the event. Only panel discussion ticket holders will be admitted to the film portion of the event.
