About

The Gay and Lesbian Humanist Association [1] is delighted to present the film “Agora” as part of the “Secular Europe Campaign” [2].

Rachel Weisz gives an outstanding performance as “a pioneer of modern astronomy and martyr to rational thought” in fourth century Alexandria, the era in which the famous library was destroyed.

The story uses historical fiction to highlight the relationship between religion and science amidst the decline of Greco-Roman polytheism and the Christianisation of the Roman Empire.

This Spanish film was banned from many cinemas in the US for its atheistic content, despite the highly rated performance of its lead actress. (who in “real life” has just married Daniel Craig by the way).

The film is highly rated by many including Terry Sanderson, President of the National Secular Society who will introduce it.

The venue is the Brockway Room, Conway Hall and there will be time for formal and informal discussion and wine.

PLEASE ARRIVE PROMPTLY. SCREENING WILL END AT ABOUT 9.45. INFORMAL CHAT/DRINKS TILL 10.30PM
