The story of America is written in its small towns. The Voices of Vail documentary follows Vail, Arizona, The Town
Between the Tracks™, through more than a century of change. It is a celebration of the people, history, and
remarkable natural beauty that make Vail special. The film is accompanied by an original overture, written by
Tucson Symphony Young Composer Claire Thai, which will be performed by the Vail Youth Symphony live
onstage before the film. A Q&A and casual reception will follow the film.
Voices of Vail was produced by Vail Preservation Society and brought to the silver screen by local filmmakers
Dennis Farris and Gerald Lamb with support from Arizona Humanities and a cadre of dedicated volunteers. We
offer special thanks to Tohono O’odham Elder Joseph Joaquin and the Tohono O’odham Basket Singers for
sharing their story in Voices of Vail.
Understanding our heritage builds awareness and vital connections between people and the places they call home.
Vail is now one of the fastest-growing areas in Arizona. But, in 1880 it was a tiny railroad siding serving ranchers
and miners whose very existence, like that of the Peoples who preceded them, depended on the life-giving waters of
Cienega Creek. Recent and rapid growth threatens the bonds of community and respect for the land that has
sustained Vail into the 21st century. Voices of Vail provides a vision for a path forward that acknowledges the need
to live harmoniously with the Sonoran Desert and honors the traditions that came before us.
