NASHVILLE –¬†On March 19, in a one-night, cinematic event, moviegoers will have the chance to dive deep into nature, appreciate the wonders of the animal kingdom and discover the world around us in a bold, new way. A celebration of creation and the Creator, “The Riot and the Dance” is a family-friendly nature and science documentary showcasing the vast and beautifully intricate planet on which we live.

This glorious uproar of creation follows acclaimed biologist Dr. Gordon Wilson as he traverses our planet, sharing nature’s masterpieces everywhere from the jungle, to the desert, to his own backyard. Through inspiring narration and a powerful visual experience, audiences of any age will develop a greater understanding of and appreciation for the Creator’s workmanship and personality.

“The Riot and the Dance” focuses on some of the world’s celebrity critters (megafauna), while also drawing attention to some of the often-overlooked inhabitants of the everyday.

“For the past three years, we have been capturing on film the wonder of the world around us,” explains director N.D. Wilson. “What better way for us to celebrate the Creator of the Universe than share His incredible creation. We hope that viewers are inspired to take a deeper look at the riot and the dance in the desert, in the jungle and in our own backyards.”

Distributed through Fathom Events, fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event on March 19 in more than 800 select movie theaters through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network (DBN). Audiences will also experience a conversation immediately after the film, featuring special appearances from Dr. Wilson, Eric Metaxas, Propaganda and other noted guests. “The Riot and the Dance” will be shown in each market at 7:00pm local time, and tickets available for purchase online at or directly from participating theater box offices.
