Rotary Club of Lititz Fifth Travelogue of the 2018-19 Season will feature “Exotic Asia”

 

The fifth presentation of the Rotary Club of Lititz 2018-19 Travel & Adventure Series will be held Saturday, March 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.

 

Set sail with filmmaker Marlin Darrah on a journey to “Exotic Asia,” featuring many of Southeast Asia’s most intriguing, alluring and lovely countries. The voyage begins in Hong Kong, where we visit many great sites found here in this famous and hyperactive Asian port city. Then we travel south to several locations in Vietnam: the exciting back streets of old Hanoi; the dramatic beauty of the ancient karst limestone mountains rising out of Ha Long Bay; the temples and markets of Nha Trang; and to Saigon, the

dynamic and hustling city near the great Mekong River. Other stops on the journey include: Angkor Wat, in the country of Cambodia; the grand trading entrepot of Singapore; and Indonesia, with an exploration of the fabled Spice Islands of Ternate and Tidore and to the island of Java, to navigate through the sea of humanity on the streets of the massive capital city, Jakarta. Finally, we journey to Thailand, to visit the densely populated and frenetic capital city of Bangkok – with its great Royal Palace, fascinating shopping streets, and busy market canals, with produce and other foods stacked high in small boats paddled by merchants. Then to the Thai paradise isles of Similan, Ko Phi Phi, Phuket and Phang Nga Bay for a brief look at other exotic aspects of Thailand, “The Land of Smiles.”

 

Darrah is the award-winning executive director and cinematographer of the renowned Portland, Oregon-based production company, International Film & Video. Darrah’s 34 years of production experience have taken him to more than 140 countries worldwide, yielding more than 70 documentary and travel-adventure programs that have aired on PBS, History Channel, Discovery Channel and more. Recently, a two-hour documentary he shot and directed in Egypt was screened at the Cairo Opera House to an audience of 3,000 guests. Darrah has produced promotional programs for dozens of international travel-adventure clients (e.g. Society Expeditions, TraveLearn, Exploration Cruise Lines, etc.). Several respected stock footage companies (including National Geographic) represent thousands of Darrah’s best international HD shots.
