History Professor Contributes to Documentary

Richard Ivan Jobs, History, is a contributor to the new documentary, les Voyaguers Sans Trace (Voyagers Without Trace), which will premiere at OMSI at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 22.

"This film invites views on a treasure hunt with the filmmaker, to uncover what happened to three French adventurers who became the first to kayak down the Green and Colorado rivers in 1938, but then disappeared into obscurity," says the film's website. An expert on modern European history with an emphasis on France, Jobs provides the viewer with insight and perspective.

The gala premiere will feature live musical performances by Jenny Conlee of the Decemberists, with a preview of her upcoming album of music composed for Voyagers Without Trace, as well as music from Boy and Bean, a post-film soiree with French-inspired food and drink, and special exhibits and photo gallery.
