"Desert Dreams: Celebrating Five Seasons in the Sonoran Desert"
Desert Museum Premier at Fox Theatre
May 19, 2013
Join the Desert Museum for the premiere of "Desert Dreams: Celebrating Five Seasons in the Sonoran Desert" on May 19th, 3:00pm, at the Fox Tucson Theatre, located at 30 North Church Avenue.
This award-winning film, by Tucson filmmaker Tom Wiewandt (who's photographic work can be found here), was filmed over four years in the Sonoran Desert and gives viewers the chance to experience the region from the inside out. The event includes demonstrations and informational booths from local conservation and art organizations (including the Desert Museum!). For more information on the film, visit the official website. A beautiful film trailer is here.
The following endorsement gives one additional flavor of what lies in store, should you attend the event.
“As an emcee at the 2013 Wild & Scenic Film Festival, I viewed
many great films and this one was my personal favorite. Desert Dreams is
a love sonnet to the Sonoran Desert. It could only have been made by
someone who has spent years in the landscape, fine tuning a naturalists
eye. This film brings you intimately close to rare and beautiful moments
and gently invites you to feel the pulse of the seasons. The filmmaker
has spent so much time exploring the desert that he knows where, when,
and how to capture its wildlife, moods, and light. This film is created
with deep love and profound respect and lets the desert speak for itself
— let it strengthen your resolve to become a steward of the desert.”
-- John Muir Laws / Naturalist, Author, Artist, & Educator
