Amid protests and controversy, young-earth creationists build an enormous, $120 million life-size Noahs Ark in rural Kentucky with the specific aim of proving that the Bible is scientifically and historically accurate.
We Believe in Dinosaurs follows the building of the Ark from blueprints to Opening Day through the eyes of three Kentuckians: Doug, a gifted artist who creates lifelike animals for the Ark; Dan, a geologist and impassioned pro-science activist who blows the whistle on the Arks discriminatory hiring practices; and David, a young former creationist who mowed lawns to raise money for creationist causes in his youth.
Shot over the course of four years, We Believe in Dinosaurs follows the Ark from blueprints to opening to aftermath and tells the story of the troubling relationship between science and religion in the United States.
