Many thanks to Propeller / FlyBy Promotions for advance screening access to FINDING NOAH so I could share about it with our readers.
Our family enjoys a good documentary piece. That’s one thing that we sometimes miss from not having cable in the house ~ all of the documentaries about history or the natural world. Having the opportunity to review FINDING NOAH ahead of it’s limited theatrical release seemed like a great fit for our family.
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.
Our Thoughts about FINDING NOAH
If you are expecting to see Noah’s Ark in this feature length film, then you will be sorely disappointed. Instead, what you will experience is seeing the geographic area where Noah’s Ark is believed to have come to rest thousands of years ago. You can get a sense of how much tension exists in this politically volatile region where borders have shifted leaving some people without a country to call their own even though the can count back the years to when their ancestors controlled the area. So the descendants take up arms in an attempt to reclaim what they regard as their land.
You will hear from people involved in an expedition that spanned several years as you can only climb the mountain within a limited time frame. Some of the expedition members participated several times while others were for just a year or two. All of the expedition members will share how the journey affected them personally.
FINDING NOAH is going to be in theaters for ONE DAY only: October 8th.
