Mission Control Texas

D:Ralf Bücheler | USA | 85 min | Arkansas Premiere

"The Atheist Experience" is the only atheist TV show in the U.S.. Every Sunday afternoon two atheists debate people on the phone for one hour - on camera. It is produced by public access TV and additionally streamed over the internet.MISSION CONTROL TEXAS portrays the show, its protagonists and the discussions between hosts and callers. The debates between believers and sceptics are hilariously funny, touching and shocking at the same time. The film is an intimate, concentrated and entertaining insight into the culture wars. And it gives us an idea what it means to be an atheist in the southern U.S. today. MISSION CONTROL TEXAS also shows religious life in Texas - and how it permeates almost every aspect of the public sphere. Finally both sides meet directly and we understand why it can be scary to be an atheist in Texas. A tragic comedy of discourse.
