RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A documentary film showing this week at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, features "Sue" the dinosaur.

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

Workers from the institute found Sue's bones in 1990 on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation near Faith.

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

Peter Larson with the institute says he's honored someone wants to tell the story.

Sue is the largest, most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex ever found and is on display at the Field Museum in Chicago.
