Documentary film about "Sue" features Black Hills geologists

Posted:

A new documentary film that was partially filmed in the Black Hills will air this week at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

"Dinosaur 13" was partially filmed at the Black Hills Institute for Geological Research in Hill City.

The documentary features "Sue." Her bones were discovered on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation near Faith during the summer of 1990 by a group of workers from the institute.

The film's director and producer Todd Miller interviewed local geologists, law enforcement, and lawyers who were involved in the discovery.

Peter Larson, President of the Black Hills Institute for Geological Research, said the story shares the troubles he faced when he found "Sue".

"I feel honored that someone wants to tell this story, but I also think it's a story worth telling and it's an uplifting story. It's not a downer," said Larson.

"Sue is the largest, most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex ever discovered.  She is on display at the Field Museum in Chicago.
