History Professor Richard Ivan Jobs Featured in New Documentary
Voyagers Without Trace, a groundbreaking film directed by Emmy Award winner Ian McCluskey of NW Documentary, includes key insight and perspective from Pacific University history professor Richard Ivan Jobs.
The film, which premieres at OMSI on Thursday, Oct. 22, "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."
Jobs, an expert on modern European history with an emphasis on France, served as the historical consultant and story advisor, conducting research and providing commentary in the film.
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.
