New Film – Losing Our Religion
Saturday, September 30th and Sunday October 1st, 304-100 Arthur Street, 3 PM and 7 PM each day
Losing Our Religion is a brand-new feature length documentary that will be making its Canadian premiere in Winnipeg next weekend. Its tag line is “It’s about preachers who are not believers and what atheists do when they miss church.” The filmmakers cultivated a rapport and were allowed inside the Clergy Project to talk to preachers who are closeted atheists, and followed one couple who were “outed”. Then they tied those stories into the larger secular shift globally, looking at Houston Oasis, Sunday Assemblies, and Gretta Vosper’s (a United Church minister turned atheist) church in Toronto.
Losing Our Religion features people in the secular community in a positive light. It got a thumbs-up from prominent atheist blogger Hemant Mehta at Friendly Atheist. It premiered last week at a festival near Boston, with Dan Dennett attending. And the production company that made the film, Zoot Pictures, is based in Winnipeg!
