Witness the fascinating true story of a 1920s female “Indiana Jones,” who as a teenager joined an expedition to travel around the world by Ford Model T and filmed and edited footage from more than 40 countries. Through rare film and photographs, you’ll learn about this unique filmmaker and her adventures, including surviving a plane crash in the uncharted Amazon and remaining for months with an indigenous tribe and filming them, while her husband went to find replacement parts. From becoming a confidante of Chinese bandits to socializing with Hollywood stars, she had an eventful life. Program approximately 90 min.
