FINDING NOAH {A Flyby Review}

Guess what I was watching Sunday night?  This super-cool new documentary called FINDING NOAH, coming to theaters for ONE day only on October 8th.

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.  

 OBM says:  FINDING NOAH was such an eye opener,  First, to hear about so many eyewitness accounts of the ark (some of which I had heard before, but some were new to me).  Second, to see such a diverse team come together for the spiritual and scientific purpose of finding the ark on Mt. Ararat.  Third, to learn of all the turbulence in the area, and the extreme difficulties of getting up there at all.  And finally, to learn that this group has been pursuing the ark with trips up Ararat for years.  The end of the movie is a great reminder of the sovereignty of God in all things.  I enjoyed it so much, I went back and rewatched the beginning now that I knew who everyone was on the mountain, just to again be reminded of their backgrounds in everyday life, because they all really work well together against incredible odds to get the job done that they need to do.  While vastly interesting to me as a Christian, I think this movie is interesting to anyone who enjoys mountain climbing or history or just seeing people try to find proof of something that is thought to exist, but can't be found today.  I'd highly recommend you go see it on the 8th!
