In 2012, friends and prominent public intellectuals Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss launched a sold out global speaking tour (including a stopover at Sydney Opera House) to promote the advancement of science and reasoning in the modern world. Their combined knowledge from the fields of evolutionary biologist and theoretical physics brings new insights to a range topics, from education to religion to the origins of the universe.
The Unbelievers is a documentary film following Dawkins and Krauss around the world, both on stage and in conversation, and includes appearances by individuals including Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris, Woody Allen, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Tim Minchin, Ricky Gervais, Cameron Diaz, and Stephen Colbert. Join the “rock stars of reason” on their crusade for rationality in an irrational world.
This is event is the Australian Premiere of the film, and will feature an introduction and post-show questions and answer session with co-star Lawrence Krauss, and Directors Gus and Luke Holwerda.
Lawrence M. Krauss is a renowned cosmologist and science populariser, and is foundation professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration, and director of the Origins Project at Arizona State University. His most recent best-seller, A Universe from Nothing, has been translated into over twenty languages.
