The Riot and the Dance

A Cinematic Celebration of Creation

Join in the glorious uproar of creation with The Riot and the Dance , a boisterous new nature documentary featuring a biologist who was once told he would never succeed if he kept blabbing about all that silly Creator-creature nonsense. Now you can follow along with Dr. Gordon Wilson as he traverses our planet, basking in God’s masterpieces. Whether he’s catching wildlife in his own back yard or in the jungles of Sri Lanka, Dr. Wilson celebrates God’s creatures in all shapes, sizes and species. (Yeah, he was bitten, but not by the cobra.)

Showstopping footage and powerful narration will open your eyes to the extraordinary glory found all over the animal kingdom. From leopards and langurs to vipers and elephants and beyond, The Riot and the Dance is a cinematic celebration that you won’t want to miss.

What happens when novelist/movie-maker, N.D. Wilson, teams up with reptile-loving, iconoclastic biologist, Gordon Wilson, to make a film? Answer: A cinematic theology of snakes and humming birds put to toe-tapping music. My wife and I loved it. John Piper, Author and Founder of DesiringGod.org
I can wholeheartedly say that I am very impressed. The imagery is absolutely stunning and can compete with the best nature documentaries. I also liked the overall message that the God of Biblical Christianity can be found in the wonders of Creation, without hiding the fact that nature is fallen and thus also exhibits a lot of cruelty and brokenness. Dr. Günter Bechly, Paleontologist
All the thrill, all the hope, wonder and peace is there in an unrestrained dance of color, movement and sound. If your world has faded to black and white, “The Riot and the Dance” is the cure for colorblindness. Timothy G. Standish, PhD, Geoscience Research Institute
Through a vividly powerful experience the audience is intended to develop a greater understanding of and appreciation for the Creator’s workmanship and personality. Denyse O'Leary, Author, Journalist and Blogger
Dr. Wilson’s narration brings to life the poetry and lyricism of nature, while asking some hard questions about the origin of such things as death and predation, ultimately rooting it all in his faith in the Bible as a God-given framework for understanding reality. Paul Garner, Researcher and Lecturer for Biblical Creation Trust
It is clear from the beginning scenes that Gordon has a deep and genuine love of nature, from insects to mammalian predators. He starts the film in the outdoors of his native Idaho, takes us to the coasts of Oregon and California, through the Sonoran Desert, and ends (almost) across the globe in Sri Lanka. We live in a fallen world as he tells us, but the beauty of nature, even in this corrupted state, has much to tell us about its true Author. Scott A. Minnich, PhD, Professor of Microbiology
