Finding Noah......#FINDINGNOAH #FLYBY
A documentary film about the search for Noah’s ark will be released in theatres across the country for a one night event on Thursday, Oct. 8. It’s entitled, FINDING NOAH.
Here’s what’s being said 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 century’s 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.
Genre: Documentary Rating: NR Runtime: 116 minutes Release Date (ONE NIGHT ONLY): October 8
I was fortunate enough to preview this movie online recently and was amazed. So many questions surround the ark and the flood that supposedly destroyed mankind except for those inside the ark. While this movie doesn’t solve the mystery, it relates a lot of information both from a theological view and a scientific outlook.
The beliefs these team members had (from both viewpoints) was invigorating. Their ability to work together and support one another was inspiring.
For thousands of years man has searched for the remains of Noah’s Ark without much success. FINDING NOAH documents one group of explorers’ dedication to the effort.
Told from viewpoints of the various team members, viewers get an appreciation of the struggle, motivation, determination, dedication and hope these men share. The movie, shot in documentary-style, takes viewers on the trek up Mount Ararat step-by-step. Seeing the conditions and extremes the team endures each time it attempts to locate just a piece of the ark is amazing. Returning each year with more zest, better equipment and knowledge of the terrain, the team labors on.
Even when faced with injuries, mishaps and disappointment, the team feels good about their quest. This faith-based movie highlights the bond these members forge and their support of each other.
While all on the mission don’t do it for faith-based reasons, they agree it’s an experience they’ll never forget.
Providing bits of history on those attempting to locate the ark, the movie also tells of the land and people where the boat is believed to be located. The landscape is breathtaking and the movie’s style gives viewers the feel of being there.
Given permission by the Turkish government to explore for only a short period of time each year, the group makes the most of what they can year after year. However, permits were denied in 2014 and any further expeditions have been put on hold due to the conflict in the area.
No matter whether it is science verses theology or man verses the elements, this dedicated group remains determined to discover what, if anything, lies beneath the snow on Mount Ararat.
You don’t have to believe in the Bible or any of the various reports of Noah and the flood to enjoy and appreciate this fascinating movie. This is a movie the entire family can enjoy together.
Blending history, mystery and beliefs, FINDING NOAH is a movie that will stir your imagination and spirit.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you get a chance to watch this inspiring movie. Do you enjoy watching documentaries? Would you like to participate in a climbing expedition? If so, which mountain would you like to climb?
