"The Unbelievers is timely, provocative, fearless, and well worth seeing… an unequivocally strong

stand for atheism, skepticism, and critical thinking." -Scientific American

"The Unbelievers is a love letter to reason…" -Pretty Clever Films

“A charming and entertaining rock and roll film about science.” – Zagreb Film Festival

“The Unbelievers is a thought-provoking piece about how we should conceptualize the

“No doubt, this is going to be a very controversial film.” - CNN

“What are you willing to believe?” is the question posed by the documentary film The

Unbelievers, which premieres at the Laemmle Music Hall Theater in Beverly Hills on

“Black Friday”, November 29, 2013 AND at the QUAD Cinemas in New York City

on December, 13, 2013, with one-week, limited engagements – following sold-out

screenings and long lines at film festivals around the world. (The film’s trailer has

been viewed nearly 400,000 times. Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZxDLkoK8vQQ )

A “rock-n-roll tour film about science and reason”, The Unbelievers follows renowned scientists and

best-selling authors Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss across the globe as they speak publicly

about the importance of science and reason in the modern world - encouraging 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.

The film also includes appearances by famed authors, performers, directors, and scientists: Cameron

Diaz, Ricky Gervais, Woody Allen, Stephen Hawking, Sarah Silverman, Bill Pullman, Werner Herzog and others. Other guest appearances include Stephen Colbert, Eddie Izzard, Penn Jillette, Bill Maher and many others.

Generating incredible excitement at screenings around the world, The Unbelievers is bringing this important conversation to a much broader audience than ever before. Surprisingly, when polled, viewers who described themselves as “religious” overwhelmingly said they would recommend this film to family and friends.

DISTRIBUTION – In 2014, The Unbelievers will receive worldwide distribution through Content Media Corporation Ltd, a London and LA based film, television and digital sales company.
