Travel at the Tripp Film Series “The Silk Road: A Journey Through Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan & Turkey”

Join filmmaker Marlin Darrah as he presents the last film in the LBCC Travel at the Tripp film series “The Silk Road: A Journey Through Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Turkey” on Sunday, April 17 at 2 p.m. at the LLBCC Russell Tripp Performance Center.

Few adventures in the world arouse as much curiosity and wonder as the one called "The Silk Road." Magical places as Samarkand, Buhkara, and Khiva, are the stuff of legends. Traders and warriors traveled by camel and on foot along the Silk Road, transporting precious cargo and treasures, and fascinating customs and cultures. Explore St. Sophia and the Blue Mosque in Istanbul; the palace and landscapes of Mt. Ararat in Turkey, the open-air markets and museums of Uzbekistan, the Navoi Theater, Crescent Moon Lake and street markets, in China; and the Tien Shan Mountains, Buryan Tower, folk dancing, and horse games in Kyrgyzstan.

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.

Travel at the Tripp is produced by LBCC Performing Arts and AAA Travel Services. Experts from AAA Travel will be on hand along with the filmmaker to answer your travel questions, with prizes from AAA given at each show.
