Sylvia Broeckx, the filmmaker behind Hug An Atheist

Come have dinner and a chat with Sylvia Broeckx, the filmmaker behind Hug An Atheist ( From the About page:

I’m an atheist in the UK and I’m often gobsmacked at how atheism is generally perceived in the US. When I read stories like Jessica Ahlquist’s or Damon Fowler’s I just sit here in disbelief and find myself somewhat outraged.

So I’ve been wondering for a while what can I do? It’s a cause I find myself quite passionate about so I want to do something to help. I’m a filmmaker. With that in mind, I would dearly love to make a film about atheism in the USA. More specifically about the people, the stories of people who have come out as atheists, the stories of people who are actively campaigning and the struggles they’ve had to deal with. I’d like to make a documentary that shows that "we are just people too, trying to live a good decent life".

    It will mostly depend on where she ends up staying. I'm hoping to hear from her soon on that. Otherwise, I was thinking maybe Marcelita's on 91 in Hudson. If that is too far north for people, I can look at maybe Parassons or some other place in Stow.
