Toronto, Canada Premiere of Metamorphosis
November 5, 2011
Sponsored by the Copernicus Group

Throughout history, butterflies have fascinated artists and philosophers, scientists and schoolchildren with their mystery and beauty.

In the new Illustra Media film Metamorphosis you can explore their remarkable world as few ever have before. Spectacular photography, computer animation and magnetic resonance imaging open once hidden doors to every stage of a butterfly’s life-cycle. From an egg the size of a pinhead to a magnificent flying insect, it is a transformation so incredible that biologists have called it “butterfly magic.”

How did these extraordinary creatures come into being? Are they the products of a blind, undirected process? Or were they intelligently designed? Find out at the Ontario, Canada Premiere of Metamorphosis on Saturday, Nov. 5 at 4:30 pm as part of the Copernicus Lectures on Science and Faith organized by the Copernicus Group.

Following the screening of the film will be a lecture and Q and A with Discovery Institute Fellow and philosopher of biology Paul Nelson, who is one of the experts featured in the film.
