For over 2000 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: Ararat, in what is now Eastern Turkey. Agri Dagh or “The Painful Mountain” is the tallest mountain in this region and happens to lie in the very center of a geo-politically unstable hot spot. With constant threats of deadly rock falls, hidden crevasses, glacial ice falls and even terrorism, the mountain poses great risk to any explorer, let alone those performing a thorough scientific investigation. That is…until now.
Join director/producer Brent Baum and producer Matthew Marsden as they follow a group 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 and in the harshest of conditions, this unprecedented feature-length documentary shows just how far men are willing to go to discover the truth. But 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. These brave pioneers will have to push beyond myth, beyond science and beyond faith in order to succeed. They will experience pain, redemption and renewal on the journey that is Finding Noah.
The Finding Noah team includes Steve Rudd, who serves as a Square Supervisor at ABR's Khirbet el-Maqatir Excavations in Israel.
