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 the Bible point to Mount Ararat, now located in Eastern Turkey, as the Ark’s final resting place. “Finding Noah” examines this evidence in detail, while chronicling the harrowing journey of a team of men in their search for the Ark. Known as Agri Dagh or “Painful Mountain,” Mount Ararat is located in one of the most volatile geopolitical regions in the world. 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. “Finding Noah” is not only a chronicle of a scientific mission, but a picture of how far the human spirit will go to achieve a goal.
“Noah’s Ark is one of history’s greatest mysteries, and it is an object of great historical, cultural and spiritual significance. Filming the search for Noah’s Ark has become one of the most amazing adventures of my life,” said Brent Baum, the director and producer of “Finding Noah.” “We are excited to share that experience with the world through the Fathom event.”
“’Finding Noah’ will give audiences a detailed look into this untold and exciting story,” said Fathom Events CEO John Rubey. “With the added expert panel discussion this will be a truly unique event well worth experiencing.”
