In Search of Noah's Ark is a 1976 documentary film released by Sunn Classic Pictures that explores the alleged final resting place of Noah's Ark.

Production notes[edit]

In Search of Noah's Ark was produced by Sunn Classic Pictures, a Utah-based independent film company that specialized in releasing low-budget family films and documentaries. Along with such features as Beyond and Back (1978) and In Search of Historic Jesus (1979), the film was one of a series of releases from the company that attempted to present convincing scientific evidence for Christian theology.[2] Parts of the film were shot in Park City, Utah.[3]

The film was based on the book by David Balsiger. Filmed independently and inexpensively, the documentary makes the assertion that Noah's Ark, from the biblical flood narrative, has been found on the slopes of Mount Ararat in Turkey, though physical and political difficulties prevent a more extensive study of the alleged vessel. The movie included a dramatic re-enactment of Noah's story as one of its highlights.[4]


In Search of Noah's Ark grossed $55.7 million at the North American box office[1][5] and was the sixth highest grossing film of 1976 in the United States.
