Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) 2009 to Open with “Creation,” a Darwin Biography

TIFF LogoJust announced (thanks @ABWeir!) — the opening night film for TIFF 2009 will be “Creation.” Here’s the film’s blurb:

“Randal Hume Keynes OBE is a British conservationist and author and a great-great-grandson of Charles Darwin. He is the author of the intimate exploration of his famous ancestry, Annie’s Box, subtitled Darwin, His Daughter, and Human Evolution a book about the relationship between Darwin and his daughter Annie whose early death deeply affected him and his views on religion. CREATION is the screen adaption of Annie’s Box by John Collee.”

You know it’s going to be a good year when it starts with evolutionary biology!
