From Religious Studies Club:

The USU School of Teacher Education and Leadership will be hosting a movie entitled “Flock of Dodos: The Evolution-Intelligent Design Circus” tomorrow (Friday October 10th) at 6:30 in the Emma Eccles Jones Education Building Auditorium (Education 131).

This video documentary highlights the debate between proponents of the concept of intelligent design and the scientific consensus that supports evolution. The documentary was first screened publicly on February 2, 2006 in Kansas, where much of the public controversy on intelligent design began. It examines the disagreements that proponents of intelligent design have with the scientific consensus position of evolution.

From what I’ve seen, the film has been praised as being very even-handed.
