Rotary Club of Lititz First Travelogue of the 2017-18 Season
will feature “Promised Land: Adventures In the Middle East”
The first presentation of the Rotary Club of Lititz 2017-18 Travel & Adventure Series will be held Saturday, September 23, at the Warwick High School Performing Arts Center, 301 W. Orange Street, Lititz. There are two performances: Matinee at 2:00 p.m. with a musical prelude starting at 1:30 p.m. and Evening at 7:30 p.m. with a musical prelude starting at 7 p.m.
The Middle East is a land of hospitality, a place where people make strangers feel at home. At the same time, it’s also been witness to acts of unspeakable brutality between warring tribes throughout history. It’s a world of paradoxes – one that is explored in director Rick Ray’s new film “The Promised Land: Adventures In the Middle East.”
“The Promised Land” represents a travel documentary through several Middle Eastern countries, including Israel, Jordan and Turkey, and it showcases the wonders of those lands while discussing their rich histories and cultures. It will include wonders such as Petra, Jerusalem, the Cedars of Lebanon, and Cappadocia.
Ray, an award-winning cinematographer, writer, editor and director, has traveled the world to capture images of its peoples and cultures. A former Lonely Planet Backpacker, he has produced numerous films on regions as diverse as Israel, Bali, Borneo, Lebanon, Syria and Iceland.
Ray is founder and president of the web-based stock footage company DVarchive.com and is a frequent lecturer at performing arts centers and universities across the United States.
