Time's Running Out For A Local, Historical Documentary

Posted By on Mon, Jun 17, 2013 at 10:05 AM

We've given Dan Buckley's "Mariachis Transform Tucson" Kickstarter some love in the past, but now's as good a time as any to take another look at it:

Buckley's project, which is set to take a look at mariachi programs have affected Tucson in positive ways (because, strangely, giving kids something to do keeps them out of trouble!) only has four days left to raise a bit less than $9,000, which is completely do-able in this city.

So let's help Buckley, who is also responsible for the documentary Tucson’s Heart and Soul: El Casino Ballroom, which looked into the history of the El Casino Ballroom, continue his look back into the history of Tucson's Latino community.
