 Professor Rick Jobs worked as a historical consultant and story advisor for Emmy-winning director Ian McCluskey of NW Documentary on his new film "Voyagers Without Trace." The film traces Ian's quest to learn more about three French kayakers who went down the Green and Colorado Rivers in 1938. Their original footage is mixed with that of Ian's voyage down these rivers in 2012 as well as his trip to France to learn more about the French Trio and their fate. On the one hand, the film is about these three historical figures as they made their way through the American West just before it was radically changed with dam building and electrification.  On the other hand, the film is an extraordinary outdoor recreation film with great nature cinematography as it follows the 2012 trio through these amazing canyons.

The event is FREE and open to the public at the:

Forest Theater, 1911 Pacific Avenue, Forest Grove 

7:00 pm Reception with Filmmaker Ian McCluskey

7:30 Screening of film (82 minutes) followed by Q & A.
