In a move that will surely only increase the heated rhetoric around his latest film, Noah director Darren Aronofsky will visit the Center for American Progress on Wednesday to discuss “the nexus of faith and environmentalism.” The film has come under attack from some religious groups for being little more than a thinly veiled political film that doesn’t even mention the word “God.” Aranofsky characterizes himself as a humanist, but says that stewardship of the Earth should be a priority for all people of faith.
The panel will feature Aronofsky, Noah Producer Ari Handel, Sierra Club executive director Michael Brune, as well as various folks from CAP. If you wanna check it out (it’s open to the public or you can live stream it), the deets are after the jump:
