Agora: Intelligent Movie On Science & Religion

Agora means meeting place in ancient Greek and this remarkable, remarkably humane, film keeps its eyes open to the humanity of all sides who meet in battle over issues of science, religion and truth.

Agora tells the story of Hypatia, the last astronomer of the library of Alexandria. The library was a storehouse of classical learning. Hypatia was killed by Christian mobs in the 4th century (those mobs may also have attacked the library). This remarkable movie looks directly at the willful ignorance of religious fanaticism and its effect on Alexandria, but never stoops to caricatures. It also captures the awe and wonder that animates science's own innate sense of the sacred.
