In honor of the Darwin Day (Feb. 12) and in celebration of Charles Darwin’s 204th birthday, we’ll be watching the 2009 film Creation.

From the film’s Wikipedia page:

Creation is a 2009 British biographical drama film. Produced by Jeremy Thomas, the film was directed by Jon Amiel, and stars Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly as Charles and Emma Darwin. John Collee wrote the script based on Randal Keynes‘s biography of Darwin titled Annie’s Box.

The film is a partly biographical, partly fictionalised account of Charles Darwin’s relationship with his eldest daughter, Annie (Martha West), as he struggles to write On the Origin of Species.

Please contribute at least $5 at the door to cover the cost of the room rental and the screening fee. Popcorn and drinks will be served!

The meeting will start at 7:00 with socializing and a few announcements. The program will start at 7:15, after which we will have open discussion with the presenter followed by more socializing. At 9:00 we usually have an open steering committee meeting which anyone is invited to attend.
