   ABL-FILM-Poster-1024_1024x1024“The journey of A Better Life began in July 2011, when I visited White Sands National Monument. It struck me in the natural beauty how many people believe that without God one’s life has no purpose or meaning – that our lives are devoid of joy and happiness because we are not religious.  I decided to travel through the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, and put together a book of photographic portraits.  From the airline pilot, to the musician, I wanted to document my fellow atheists and ask them what brings meaning and joy to their lives. The goal of the book was to visually capture the diversity of nonbelievers and the ways they maintain a better life, not in spite of their atheism, but because of it.”

Chris has done screening events of A Better Life in over 90 cities on five continents. From London, New York, Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and Houston, to Shanghai, Lima, Reykjavik, Copenhagen, Sydney, Hong Kong, Guatemala City, and more!  At YHC’s Sagan Day Celebration, Chris will present film clips and discuss with attendees. His beautiful coffee table book and DVD will be available for purchase.
