New Indie Film: We Believe in Dinosaurs

Indiewire has a story about a new film soon to be out that follows the construction of the Ark Encounter from blueprint stage to opening and examines the “unsettling and uniquely American conflict between science and religion.”  From the story:
In recent years, believing has not been enough for creationists. Determined to prove that the Bible is historically and scientifically accurate, they have begun building museums based on creation science. Their goal is to debunk evolution and to do that they are starting to think big. A comparison of 34 industrialized countries finds that the United States ranks near the bottom when it comes to public acceptance of evolution.

As creationism moves into the White House, it remains one of the most polarizing forces in the United States. That is why this film is so important right now.
I will be surprised if this comes anywhere near Knoxville but might appear as a Fathom event.
