The School of Natural Resource’s fall documentary series will conclude with “Dinosaur 13.” The event is free and open to the public.

The documentary, which premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, tells the story of Paleontologist Peter Larson and his team from the Black Hills Institute who made the world’s greatest dinosaur discovery in 1990. They discovered the largest, most complete T. rex ever found. But during a 10-year battle with the U.S. government, powerful museums, Native American tribes, and competing paleontologists they found themselves not only fighting to keep their dinosaur but fighting for their freedom as well.

Dinosaur 13 has achieved critical acclaim and won numerous awards, including the 2015 Emmy Award for Outstanding Science & Technology Programming. It is based on the book “Rex Appeal: The Amazing Story of Sue, the Dinosaur That Changed Science, the Law, and My Life” by Peter Larson and Kristin Donnan.

A panel discussion will follow the event to explore deeper the topics and themes in the documentary. Snacks will be available for sale to support SNR’s student clubs.

Parking will be provided in Hardin Hall parking lot except for meters and reserved facilities spaces. Doors open at 6:15 p.m.
