“We Believe In Dinosaurs” Chicago Premiere Film Screening

January 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Join C2ST for the Chicago premiere of We Believe in Dinosaurs, followed by a discussion and reception with the directors, Clayton Brown and Monica Long Ross of 137 Films.

We Believe in Dinosaurs is a documentary film about creationism, Noah’s Ark, and America’s troubled relationship with science.

Amid protests and controversy, young-earth creationists build an enormous, $120 million “life-size” Noah’s Ark in rural Kentucky with the specific aim of proving that the Bible is scientifically and historically accurate.

We Believe In Dinosaurs follows the building of the Ark from blueprints to Opening Day through the eyes of three Kentuckians: Doug, a gifted artist who creates lifelike animals for the Ark; Dan, a geologist and impassioned pro-science activist who blows the whistle on the Ark’s discriminatory hiring practices; and David, a young former creationist who mowed lawns to raise money for creationist causes in his youth.

Shot over the course of four years, We Believe In Dinosaurs follows the Ark from blueprints to opening to aftermath and tells the story of the troubling relationship between science and religion in the United States.

This program is generously sponsored by the John A. Cable Foundation.

Please plan to arrive by 5:45 PM. The film screening will begin immediately at 6 PM.

Monday, January 27, 2020, from 6 – 8:30 PM at The Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 North State Street (between Lake and Randolph), Chicago, IL 60601.

The film run-time will be 6 – 7:30. Following the screening, there will be a discussion with the directors and a food & wine reception.
