Thursday 15 October 2015 - HOC Special Event: Filmmaker presents
"A Better Life"
In October the HOC is flying filmmaker Christopher Johnson in from New York
for a special Thursday showing of his documentary film. Join the usual Hub
movie crowd to hear Chris discuss his film, "A Better Life: An Exploration
of Joy and Meaning in a World Without God", followed by a showing of the
film itself on the big screen at the Hub.
"There is no God. Now what? If this is the only life we have, how does that affect how we live our lives, how we treat each other, and cope with death. As a follow-up to one of Kickstarter’s most successful publishing projects, photographer and filmmaker Chris Johnson introduces us to some of the many voices from his book. In this fascinating documentary, learn the stories behind the book in interviews with some of our greatest thinkers. Join Chris as he explores issues of joy & meaning and travels around the globe meeting people from all walks of life and backgrounds who challenge the false stereotypes of atheists as immoral and evil. From Daniel Dennett and A.C. Grayling to Julia Sweeney and Robert Llewellyn, learn the various ways atheists have left religion to a better life filled with love, compassion, hope, and wonder!"
Chris will have copies of his book, on which the film is based, for sale and signing.
Venue Instructions: Parking is available on the side of the building, on the street, in the lot across the alley, and in the lot across 31st street. Please do not park directly behind the building, under the stairway to the upstairs apartments.
If you would like to have dinner at the Hub, slices of pizza will be available at low cost, along with the usual concessions. (No potluck again this month)
