*****************************************
Everyone knows the story of Noah's Ark, right? It's probably one of the most popular Bible stories there is! There are movies and books galore and even bedroom decor for kids. If you know only one Bible story, chances are that one story is Noah's Ark.

But have you ever wondered what actually happened to the ark? Where is it now? Where's the proof that it happened? For years, many have searched, and today I'm excited to share with you an all new documentary all about that search:





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 archaeologists, 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.


Now, I must admit, I'm not a huge documentary person, but when I find a topic that interests me, I do enjoy them on occasion. This is a topic that definitely caught my attention, so I was thrilled to have the chance to screen in advance of the theater release October 8.

If you're expecting a fast paced adventure documentary, you might find yourself a bit disappointed. Don't get me wrong, there is plenty of adventure, but nothing crazy! The first part talks about the history of the searches for Noah's Ark, including stories of sightings and theories- it might sound a little boring, but it was actually pretty interesting to hear. I may have known the story of Noah's Ark, but I didn't know about all of this history. Then came the actually journey itself. It was fascinating to see just what went into this journey. It wasn't an easy road, and there were disappointments along the way, but these men held onto their faith throughout the expedition. And this wasn't just a movie about faith...they used science and history to truly search for the ark in a way that even non-believers could say was legit.

So, did they find anything? You'll have to watch for yourself to find out...but one thing is for certain, sometimes it doesn't matter what you do or don't find- the real experience is all about the journey.

Finding Noah will be released in theaters on October 8 for one night only. You can learn more and connect at the links below:
