About Finding Noah…
For over 2,000 years, man has been searching for the final resting place of Noah’s Ark. Though there have been many attempts, few have been able to fully explore the one place specifically noted in the Bible: Mount Ararat. Located in Eastern Turkey, Agri Dagh or “The Painful Mountain” is the tallest mountain in the region and lies in the very center of a centuries old, geo-politically unstable hot spot. With constant threats of deadly rock slides, hidden crevasses, and glacial ice falls, the Kurdish Rebel held mountain poses great risk to any explorer, let alone those performing a thorough scientific investigation.Join director/producer Brent Baum and the FINDING NOAH film crew as they follow an expedition of intrepid explorers on a perilous trek up to Mt. Ararat’s desolate summit. There, using state of the art technology and real-time satellite imagery, this team of archeologists, scientists and professional mountaineers will begin a grid work of exploration unlike any before, hoping to finally resolve the age-old question: did Noah and his Ark actually exist?Shot in never-before filmed locations in the harshest of conditions, this unprecedented feature-length documentary shows just how far men are willing to go to discover the truth. Narrated by Academy Award nominee Gary Sinise, FINDING NOAH is more than a quest for answers, it is a testament of the human spirit, where belief and the need for exploration transcend risk and limitation.

We watched this as a Family Night activity. We’ve seen documentaries about finding Noah’s Ark before and enjoyed them. So we thought we would enjoy prescreening this one together. And we really did find it interesting.
One of the things we all commented on during the documentary was how much history was included and how it helped us to understand the search a bit more. The beginning had a lot of information that laid a foundation for the actual search of the ark. It was a bit confusing at first, but it made sense later as we watched it.
We found the views that were shown of Mt. Ararat and the surrounding scenery were very beautiful. But we decided that we would just watch things like this documentary to actually see that part of the world. It seems a bit safer than what our explorer team went through to search for the Ark. We were glad that they took such great video so we could see it though.
If you have the chance to see this documentary in the theater this Thursday, October 8, 2015, I would encourage you to do so. It would be fantastic on the big screen.
