Landmark Stories is Going to South by Southwest

Join Landmark Stories at the UArizona Wonder House—an immersive surround installation bringing the sights, sounds, colors and smarts of the Sonoran Desert to the South by Southwest® (SXSW) Festival in Austin, Texas. Scientist Denise Moreno Ramírez, producer Sandra Westdahl, and creative designer Elena Lopez will present a sneak preview of their new environmental justice documentary and discuss how filmmakers and scientists can work together with communities to amplify and empower people’s voices.

South by Southwest® dedicates itself to helping creative people achieve their goals. The March event features sessions, music and comedy showcases, film screenings, exhibitions, professional development and a variety of networking opportunities. SXSW proves that the most unexpected discoveries happen when diverse topics and people come together. The festival will take place March 10 - 19, 2023.
