Join us for a screening of the new documentary,
“Water Matters More”!

Tin Shed Theater in Patagonia, Arizona
Dear friends of the Patagonia Area Resource Alliance,
We’re writing because we are so excited to share “Water Matters More” with you! It is our newest short film that tells the story of the Sonoita Creek watershed, the Patagonia community, and the threats posed to both by Canadian mining company Arizona Mining, Inc. (soon to be South32). The film focuses on our region’s thriving, nature-based economy and the local residents, scientists, and organizations working to protect human and non-human life in the region—many of whom are featured in the film. Those making an appearance include Ravens-Way Wild Journeys, Borderlands Restoration, James Callegary from USGS, Deep Dirt Farm Institute, Laura Norman from USGS, Susan Montgomery, Esq., Earthworks, not to mention many beloved area residents and activists.
Michele Gisser has been working for months to create and shape this film, doing so with financial support from the Story of Stuff Project, the Friends of Sonoita Creek, and the Friends of the Santa Cruz River. We hold deep gratitude to Michele and our sponsors for allowing us to tell this story through film, and we want to thank all of you who went in front of the camera to share your truth.
To accompany the film, we’ll give a short presentation and share updates about PARA’s advocacy efforts. The event is free, though we encourage attendees to support the Tin Shed Theater with a donation (there will be a donations bucket) and by purchasing refreshments (beer, wine, beverages, snacks, etc—do bring cash)!
We look forward to seeing you on the seventh.
The PARA Board of Directors
