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, and performed by the Vail Youth Symphony. 

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. The film earned the Audience Choice Award at the 2018 Show Low Film Festival. 

In 1880 Vail was a tiny railroad siding serving ranchers and miners whose existence, like that of the Peoples who preceded them, depended on the life-giving waters of nearby Cienega Creek. Voices of Vail provides a vision for a path forward that acknowledges the need to live harmoniously with the Sonoran Desert and honors the diverse cultural traditions that have shaped the Vail community. 

The Old Vail Store & P.O. will be another Vail Preservation Society Preservation Powered by Youth project engaging Cienega H.S. Construction Tech and TSW students learning lifelong skills as they make a real and lasting impact on their community.
