    On Tour.. Sahara Safari

    On Tour.. Sahara Safari

    Follow
    Released 2011
    The Libyan area of the Sahara fascinates with its varied landscapes of lakes set amid desert dunes, ancient towns built of mud, camps with straw-covered circular huts, prehistoric rock paintings and amazing multi-shaped stone formations. For centuries, Ghadames, an oasis town. has been the junction of several caravan routes and thanks to the Mare Spring it has benefitted from a good supply of water. The houses were small but beautifully decorated and red-framed mirrors assist in the illumination of the main room. The uppermost floors were for women only and they could spend their day unveiled. Ancient Garma was once the capital of the Garamante Realm, one of the most powerful Berber realms in North Africa and the Sahara. Greek and Roman historians wrote much of the mighty tribe that lived in desert which at the height of its power controlled neighbouring tribes and among its arsenal included horse drawn chariots. The discovery of the Akakus rock paintings in 1850 was made by German explorer and scientist, Heinrich Barth. Protected by huge rocks and hidden in a tangled labyrinth of canyons, the rock paintings remained undiscovered for thousands of years. Nestling among the huge sand dunes of the Libyan Sahara is one of the most striking natural wonders on Earth, the Mandara Lakes. Some of the 11 lakes have dried out, such as that of the Mandara while others, like the Am Alma, are at their most impressive. Each lake is surrounded by a green belt in which reed and date palms create what is tantamount to being a biblical ambience. The Sahara, although scorching hot and untamed by Man, has shared with us its remarkable and memorable natural wonders!moreless

    Released 2009
    Running the Sahara is a feature documentary narrated and executive produced by Academy Award® winner Matt Damon and directed by Academy Award® winner James Moll. This powerful and inspirational film chronicles an attempt by three ultra marathoners to run across the entire length of Africa's Sahara Desert, tackling not only the elements, but also unimaginable physical and emotional obstacles. Their goal is to run across six African countries, anticipating two marathons per day, for eighty days . . . without a day off. Charlie Engle from the United States, Kevin Lin from Taiwan, and Ray Zahab from Canada, have run together in marathons before. But this time is different. This isn't a race. It's a grueling test of will and a chance to accomplish something that no known person has ever achieved. The films score was produced by Academy Award® winner Hans Zimmer, composed by Heitor Pereira, with songs from U2, Pearl Jam, and original songs performed by Wyclef Jean and the African Children's Choir. Running the Sahara inspired Matt Damon and the film's producers to create H20 Africa, a non-profit foundation to raise awareness and funding for clean water initiatives in Africa.moreless

    The film opens up with an image of Central Oregon's Mount Bachelor and the Central Oregon Cascades, which is the fictional setting for Mount St. Helens itself. On March 20, 1980 an earthquake of 4.1 on the Richter Scale strikes Mount St. Helens, signalling the first signs of volcanic activity in 123 years.During the first earthquake, a flight of quail becomes disoriented and smashes into the windshield of an Aerospatiale SA341G Gazelle helicopter being used for logging operations. Pilot Otis Kaylor lands the helicopter, only to be accused of nearly killing a group of loggers.Shortly afterward, David Jackson (a loose play on the name of real-life vulcanologist David Johnston), a United States Geological Survey scientist, is sent to investigate the activity. Upon arriving in the small town of Cougar (a real-life town located 12 miles south of Mount St. Helens), he quickly befriends a single mother named Linda Steele (played Cassie Yates), who is a waitress at a fictional restaurant named Whittaker's Inn. While there, he stirs up concern with the owner, Clyde Whittaker (Albert Salmi), and a group of farmers and loggers.Art Carney, in one of his finest roles, stars as the 83-year-old Mount St. Helens Lodge owner Harry Randall Truman. Throughout the film, Carney delivers a stellar depiction of Truman and his defiant attitude toward the idea of leaving his home.Later in the film, as the volcanic activity increases, so does the attraction between Jackson and Steele, and the two eventually fall in love. In their last scene in the movie, he packs Linda and her son off to safety and stays behind for the work that needed to be done on Johnston Ridge, presumably on the day before the eruption. Later that night, he pays a last visit to Harry Truman.On May 18, he hikes to a ridgetop on the north face of Mount St. Helens to monitor some scientific equipment, then the mountain explodes. As the film ends, Linda soon realizes the hormoreless

    Historic Pubs of Dublin is a 2008 PBS travel documentary that brings attention to some of Dublin's most storied drinking establishments.

Led by late Pulitzer Prize-winning author Frank McCourt, the film takes a tour around the city, soaking in the sights and sounds of a proud drinking tradition. In addition to the pubs, attention is paid to other significant sites in Dublin, including Jameson Distillery, Guinness Brewery, Trinity College, Dublin Castle, Grafton Street, St. Patrick's Cathedral, city parks, and more.

    Released 2003
    The American Hobo is a 2003 documentary that explores the image of the wandering worker, the long figure hopping trains that has been a recurring image in American imagination and experience. Director Bobb Hopkins examines the history of the hobo, a term that first appeared in the early 19th century and referred to migratory workers who moved around the country. During the Depression era, the image of the down-and-out hobos catching a free train ride or huddling around a fire was omnipresent in films, news reels and art. Beyond the background, the film also speaks to famous personalities about their own hobo experiences. Merle Haggard, legend of Country Music, recounts his own adventures on the open road. Long before he won the Pulitzer Prize, author James A. Michener ("Tales of the South Pacific") spent some lean years working his way on back roads. Some folks chose the hobo life as a way to embrace a free-spirited, independent existence. Actor Ernest Borgnine hosts this historical and first-person look at the hobo life.moreless

    The Champagne Safari is a 1995 documentary film about millionaire Charles E. Bedaux. Bedaux held an expedition in 1934 which he named after himself, the Bedaux Expedition. He and his caravan of more than 100 people set out to travel from Edmonton, Alberta to Telegraph Creek, British Columbia. The excursion was over 1,500 miles and a good part of it had no roads or trails. Bedaux brought Hollywood film director Floyd Crosby and a large movie crew along with him with the hope he would later make a movie about the adventure. The expedition was never finished due to rough terrain and weather, but they did spend 4 months traveling the mountains. They ended the expedition at Hudson's Hope where they held an extravagant party to celebrate their success with the trails they did complete. Bedaux's footage of the adventure was lost, but years later it was found in a Paris basement. This documentary, directed by George Ungar, was made using the found footage.moreless
