On this episode of ID The Future
, host David Boze interviews filmmaker Fred Foote, writer and producer of the new feature-length drama Alleged
, which seeks to tell the real story behind the infamous 1925 Scopes Trial in Dayton, Tennessee that pitched Darwinian evolution against belief in God. After seeing the 1960 film Inherit the Wind
, starring Gene Kelly and Spencer Tracy, Foote did his own research into the trial and discovered that Inherit the Wind
was "almost exactly wrong" on many crucial points. So he set out to make another movie that would set the record straight and would explore how media can influence society's perspective on past events.
