Dr. David Orenstein, host of the NYC Atheists Book and Film Club,  presents “Defending Your Life,”  a 1991 romantic comedy-fantasy film about a man who dies and arrives in the afterlife only to find that he must stand trial and justify his lifelong fears on earth in order to advance to the next phase of life or be sent back to earth to do it all over again.

The film examines the irrationality of most of our fears and how they interfere with our living a good life.  While Atheists reject the whole idea of an afterlife, this fantasy, graced by Meryl Streep and Rip Torn, brings home the idea that life on earth could be better if we divested ourselves of some irrational fears.
