Summer Screening Series Recap!

We loaded up, and headed for Green River, Wyoming. This time, not with cameras, but with the finished film. This is where Voyagers Without Trace began. It was so powerful to return to Expedition Island--where I first discovered the sign. How strange to return some 17 years later with Roy, who had made the sign, and John Waller who had helped me create the film.

The town put up an inflatable screen, set up a popcorn popper, and invited a wooden canoe and kayak maker to display some of his boats, and the town gathered camp chairs and sat in a semi-circle as the day turned to dusk.

It was eerie to hear spoken French echo from the speakers off the mesas. I couldn’t help but wonder what Genevieve and Bernard and Antoine would think… if they ever could have possibly imagined this town gathering 75 years after their trip to hear their story.

It was such an honor to play such a small role in carrying the past into the present, coming full circle. We screened in Salt Lake, and also in Green River, Utah. And of course, Nancy Dunham brought watermelons.
