The Margaret Mead Film Festival is pleased to announce its co-presentation of Bill Nye: Science Guy with the Human Rights Watch Film Festival. A famous television personality struggles to restore science to its rightful place in a world hostile to evidence and reason. As climate change becomes a growing factor in global disasters of displacement, resource shortages and war, Bill Nye is challenged by evolution and climate change deniers to defend scientific evidence. It is clear this debate is taking a major human toll. With the increased push to dismantle environmental protections in the United States, Nye takes a stand to show the world why science matters in a political culture increasingly indifferent to evidence.
