February 2015
8 Even Though the Whole World is Burning
This special screening is a fundraiser for Woven Words: Poetry of the Sonoran Desert. Woven Words is an exciting new collaboration that pairs two Tucson cultural institutions: the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and the University of Arizona Poetry Center. The project will feature 30 poetry installations throughout the Museum grounds, each underscoring the profound relationship between knowledge, the imagination, and an ethos of conservation.
Poet Alison Deming, an Agnese Nelms Haury Chair in Environment and Social Justice at the University of Arizona, will speak on Merwin's legacy before the screening.
A reception will follow the film.
Donations for Woven Words will be accepted during the reception. To learn more about the project or to RSVP for this special screening, please contact Cree Zischke: 520-883-3039 or czischke@desertmuseum.org. RSVPs are required to attend this event.
