The Unbelievers is a documentary about the importance of science and reason and an indictment of the widespread ignorance that continues well into the 21st century. Consisting of conversations between Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss, this documentary is intended to encourage the believers to think critically about their beliefs, especially when they are used to influence political leaders, decision-making and the laws which govern our countries. Unfortunately, the audience for films like this are already critically minded godless individuals who remain frustrated with the fact that so many of the world’s most fervent believers continue to be such a strong influence in many of our societies (Klaus Ming December 2014).
