Sylvia Broeckx is hardly the first person living in Europe to be appalled at how atheists are treated in the U.S. Her approach to dealing with the problem, however, was new. Rather than tut (perhaps rightly) at how uncivilized we are, she decided to do something about it. After crowdsourcing the funding, she came to the U.S. to make a film featuring everyday atheists in the U.S. The result was the documentary Hug an Atheist, which premiered at the atheist film festival in San Francisco last year.

This Sunday, Sylvia joins us to discuss making her film and her quest to get the film out to festivals and wider audiences. Later that day, we will be screening Hug an Atheist for our monthly meeting, with the proceeds to fund distribution of the film.
