IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF MARCO POLO chronicles the journey of two ordinary guys - Belliveau, at the time a wedding photographer, and O'Donnell, an artist and former Marine - as they set out to follow Polo's historic route. Equal parts travelogue, adventure story, history trek and buddy movie, the 90-minute film weaves footage from the duo's often perilous voyage with Marco Polo's descriptions and experiences. Richly enhanced with Belliveau's award-winning photographs, the program details their highs and lows as they retrace Polo's path, trying to see what he saw and feel what he must have felt.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
