I was so blessed to be able to view this documentary before its release, it will be releasing in theaters for one day only on October 8th, 2015.
This documentary follows a team of men who go up Mt Ararat to search of the Ark, through dangerous territory, near warzones, using high tech equipment, and compiled information from those who have gone before them. With members of the team from various professions and callings, from pastors, a missionary, geological technicians, and scholars, each with a passion for this mission. Various teams have gone up in the past to the mountain, but this is first time much of this landscape and information has been shared on film.
I found it very fascinating, there were many interesting interviews from various scholars and men from various scientific and technical backrounds. I the way that the men described their mission, and how if they were to discover the Ark, it would be tangible proof that God has intervened in the lives of man to save humanity--the more I thought about it, the more I understood their excitement. It was contagious, and I loved how the documentary made me feel as if I was right along with them, minus the more boring and cold parts of their adventure.
The landscape was breathtaking at times, and I immensely enjoyed this film, suspenseful and informative, filled with adventure, and faith. This is an excellent film from beginning to end, it will draw you in, even if you aren't into films of this nature, I would recommend giving it a shot. The excitement was so contagious!
Overall, a wonderful film, I know that I'm lacking in many technical terms to describe much of what was going on, so hopefully I'm doing it justice. I'm looking forward finding out more, an hopefully learning about what they find in future trips to the mountain. A well done film, that takes a honest look at the search for the Ark. Definitely worth watching!

About the Film: 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.
