Dr Gordon Wilson’s ‘Riot and the Dance’ presents a nature documentary with a Christian theme

Against the backdrop of the Genesis creation narrative, Dr. Gordon Wilson’s The Riot and the Dance attempts to open eyes of audiences to God’s handiwork, a glorious perfection that amazes and confounds.

Part nature show, part documentary and part Bible study, Dr. Wilson’s journey is a showcase of various beautiful creatures from, what Wilson calls, the megafauna. Beginning with an investigation of the critters in the backyard, insects or a garter snake, to hummingbirds, elephants and exotic, deadly snakes – Wilson takes viewers on a vast journey.

Presented by Fathom Events and Gorilla Poet Productions, “The Riot and the Dance” arrives in theaters nationwide on Monday, March 19 at 7:00 p.m. local time. Audiences will also experience an in-depth panel discussion with Dr. Wilson and other experts. Dr. Wilson has a Ph.D. in Environmental Science and Public Policy and is a Senior Fellow of Natural History, responsible for the New Saint Andrews College’s Natural History Colloquium and science electives. In addition to writing “The Riot and the Dance: Foundational Biology,” he is a regular contributor at “Answers in Genesis.”


Whether you subscribe to Wilson’s theology or not, it is interesting to see the world through his eyes. The scientist marvels at the world and the creatures which inhabit it like a young boy viewing the wonders with true amazement.

The shortcoming is the narration. Wilson’s monotone descriptions and lectures fall flat and short circuit his excitement on many occasions. The heavy handed theological presumptions will alienate the non-believers and shrink his audience. Wilson’s expertise are showcased and introduced to viewers who can hope for a fresh partnership, with different narration and a more interview based presentation.

The Riot and the Dance earns 2 stars out of 5 stars
