Margaret Mead Film & Video Festival

December 5, 2007 @ 6:00 pm 8:30 pm EST

Flock of Dodos (Randy Olson, 2006). Who are the dodos in the current debate over evolution versus intelligent design?  With a Super Size Me – style good spirit, marine biologist turned filmmaker Randy Olson travels the country in search of an answer.  He starts with his 82 year old mother who is neighbors with the top lawyer for intelligent design in Olson’s home state of Kansas, which is the epicenter of the controversy.  This film gets beyond the tedium of the “debate” of who’s right and who’s wrong.  Instead, it explores how those who embrace each side are “communicating” their ideas to the public. 

Part of iEAR Presents!, co-sponsored by the Department of the Arts at RPI and funded in part by the Electronic Media and Film Program at the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
