Years ago, when I first started working with Susan Hendrickson, she told me about the incredible story that happened AFTER she found what was to become the worlds most famous T-Rex. I could barely believe it was true. And through the years that we worked together diving on shipwrecks and sunken cities, she would update the team on the ongoing series of events that seemed like something from a Hollywood Movie.
But the story was real, and so amazing that now the story behind the Discovery has been made into a feature length Documentary film that is wowing film festival audiences from London to Melbourne. With clips and commentary from Dan Rather, Katie Couric, grainy news footage and stunning new cinematography, this new film brings all the pieces together.
After the Premiere I spoke to Peter Larson, Sue's Colleague and founder of the Black Hills Institute, and principal role in the film. Next time I drive across the US, I'll make a point taking a northern route to see the home base of this intrepid team of Paleontologists.
Opening at select theaters on August 15th, 2014, This is an important film about Scientific Exploration and the battle of some passionate paleontologists against a foe more frightening than the T-Rex, because it is alive and roams the earth today.
