FINDING NOAH Chronicles Dangerous Archaeological Expedition in Search of Noah’s Ark

FindingNoah_OfficialPosterFINDING NOAH, a new feature documentary that brings to life an archaeological expedition in search of Noah’s Ark will be shown October 8, 2015, during a one-time event in select U.S. theaters. It will later be available for in-home and church events.

Releasing from 17K ASL and Alchemy and narrated by Academy Award nominee Gary Sinise, the documentary follows a team of archaeologists, theologians and explorers as they summit one of the world’s most dangerous mountains in a quest to discover a highly sought after piece of history.


For thousands of years, mankind has been fascinated by the story of a global flood and one family’s dramatic escape in a homemade vessel. Versions of the story appear in almost every culture, but the most well-known is the biblical account of Noah found in Genesis.

Historical reports, scientific evidence and biblical accounts point to Mount Ararat, now located in Eastern Turkey, as the Ark’s final resting place. Known as Agri Dagh or “Painful Mountain,” Mount Ararat is located in one of the most volatile geopolitical regions in the world.

The documentary examines the historic reports, scientific evidence and biblical accounts in detail, while chronicling the harrowing journey of a team of men in their search for the Ark. The documentary is not only a chronicle of a scientific mission, but a picture of how far the human spirit will go to achieve a goal.  The FINDING NOAH expedition had to brave dangerous environmental challenges, deadly rock and ice falls, hidden crevasses, hypoxia and even terrorism in their quest to find the Ark.

“Noah’s Ark is one of history’s greatest mysteries, and it is an object of great historical, cultural and spiritual significance,” said Brent Baum, the director and producer of FINDING NOAH. “There was so much evidence leading to Mount Ararat, it seemed irresponsible not to look for it there. Filming the search for Noah’s Ark has become one of the most amazing adventures of my life.”

Unlike many documentaries on the Flood and the Ark, which only addresses the evidence supporting the biblical story, FINDING NOAH brings in experts from all sides of the discussion. It contains interviews with experts from the Muslim, Jewish and Christian faiths who discussed the story found in Holy Scripture. It examines historic reports of eye-witness sightings of Ark. It includes discussion from scientists who believe the Flood and Ark is a myth and those who believe in the possibility that the Ark is waiting to be found. Once the exhibition was underway, it was interesting to see the exhibition members using state-of-the-art technology to find evidence.

FINDING NOAH will be shown October 8, 2015, during a one-time event in select U.S. theaters through a partnership with Fathom Events. The event will include the full-length feature, as well as a panel discussion with archeologists, theologians, filmmakers and expedition team members.
