LBCC Travel at the Tripp Film Series “Southern Europe”

Join filmmaker Marlin Darrah as he presents the second film in the LBCC Travel at the Tripp film series “Southern Europe: A Journey to Paris, Cannes, Barcelona, Granada, Seville, Dubrovinik, and Istanbul” on Sunday, Jan. 15 at 2 p.m. in the Linn-Benton Community College Russell Tripp Performance Center.

Darrah’s film is a delicious sampler package from many wonderful Central and Southern European cities; a feast of architectural and cultural highlights from Paris, Cannes, Barcelona, Granada, Seville, Dubrovnik and Istanbul. From the Seine and the art galleries of Paris, to the Moorish palaces and narrow market streets of Spain; to the greatest coastal walled city in the world, to the most fascinating and alluring city of the Eastern Mediterranean, Istanbul; this program is filled with rich cinematography and sound.

Darrah is an award-winning executive director of the Portland, Oregon-based production company, International Film and Video. His 30 years of production experience have taken him to more than 130 countries worldwide, yielding more than 70 documentary and travel-adventure programs to date. PBS, History Channel, Discovery Channel, CNN, FOX, CBS, ABC, TBN and MTV all have aired Darrah’s international footage or programs.
