Sergio Avila-Villegas, Northern Mexico Conservation Program Manager

Biologist Sergio Avila-Villegas attended the University of Aguascalientes, then University of Baja California for a Master’s degree in Arid Lands Management. For over a decade, Sergio has gained extensive training and experience working in northwest Mexico on wildlife research and conservation projects on species like mountain lions, Cactus ferruginous pygmy-owls, California sea lions, river otters, Santa Catalina rattlesnakes and sea birds. In 2003 he initiated work on jaguar conservation in the Sierra Madre of Sonora where he monitored the northernmost breeding population of jaguars. At Sky Island Alliance, Sergio is taking the lead on wildlife research and conservation efforts in northern Mexico and cross-border connectivity, currently filling a critical niche with community outreach, research and conservation in places where no information currently exists regarding the status of the borderland’s cuatro gatos. Sergio lives in Tucson, Arizona with his wife Jenny.


Jessica Moreno, Wildlife Linkages Program Coordinator

Wildlife biologist Jessica Moreno attended The University of Arizona in Natural Resources, receiving a Bachelors degree in Wildlife, Watershed and Rangeland Management. Since then Jessica has attained training and experience in wildlife research, with emphasis in non-invasive remote camera monitoring and wildlife tracking techniques. Jessica spent four years as the Field Biologist and Volunteer Coordinator for The University of Arizona Wild Cat Research and Conservation Center, combining citizen science and community outreach with local mountain lion and urban bobcat monitoring projects. With Sky Island Alliance, Jessica has served as a volunteer for ocelot and jaguar monitoring and tracking instruction since 2004, and with grassroots organizing and outreach as the Conservation Associate for Protected Lands. She became Sky Island Alliance's Wildlife Linkages Program Coordinator in 2010, where she trains and engages volunteer naturalists in wildlife monitoring research, informs public policy, and advocates to protect, connect and restore wildlife movement corridors in the Sky Island region. Jessica is Track & Sign II certified through CyberTracker Conservation International.





a staged reading of a new play by Dawn C. Sellers


Travel with the Moon through the Sonoran desert as a young girl grows into a wildlife biologist in order to catch a jaguar...but at what cost? TO CATCH A JAGUAR was inspired by the untimely death of Macho B in 2009, at that time, Arizona's last known jaguar. Come explore the dangers and dreams of our environment through discussions with playwright, conservationists and biologists following each performance.

By Chuck Graham,


You think the negotiations are tough to buy a new car? Try negotiating with Somali pirates in the Indian Ocean who have seized your ship and crew for $15 million ransom.

That’s the setup in this genuinely engaging psychological drama confronting a Danish shipping executive who feels personally responsible for bringing the ship’s seven-man crew back to Denmark. His idealism will also make you homesick for those more wholesome times we used to have in the United States.

As written and directed by Tobias Lindholm, a promising member of the new generation of Danish filmmakers, “A Hijacking” now playing at the Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd., is as lean and direct as any film aficionado could want.

Søren Malling is completely believable as Peter Ludvigsen the manicured shipping executive adept at playing the mind games of European board room powerbrokers.

But when it comes to matching wits with a Somali gambler who makes it clear he is not some provincial outlaw sailor, Ludvigsen discovers all the rules of this game are completely different.

More brutal, more ruthless, with no gentlemanly set of honorable standards to maintain, Ludvigsen is thrown back to relying on his own animal cunning.

Can this negotiator for the pirates, simply called Omar (Abdihakin Asgar), be trusted at all?

Humanizing the situation to build up the tension is the amiable ship’s cook Mikkel Hartmann (Pilou Asbæk). He’s not motivated by bravado but by love for his family. As negotiations drag on for many weeks, Mikkel begins to wonder if the lives of this crew are also negotiable for Ludvigsen, who could be feeling more pressure from his board of directors in Copenhagen.

Once again, trust becomes the major emotion, for without trust there can be no deal. For the audience, be reassured this is not an American movie that will be resolved by some giant explosions and a violent fist fight.

Human nature and cultural heritage are more important than pyrotechnics and special digital effects.


By Chuck Graham,


Grisly human slaughter expressed as Asian ritual murder is the pumping red heart of “Only God Forgives,” now playing at the Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd. Unlikely action figure Ryan Gosling re-teams with Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn (“Drive”) for this even more relentless display of revenge-driven violence.

Rated R, the coldly stylized “Only God Forgives” does not display gratuitous gore so much as it builds up emotional fears of unimagined pain that come spilling out without warning.

The shock value is palpable, though it only occurs a few times. These money shots are cleverly paced in a slow-moving flow of events – heightening the shock value even further.

The morally tattered back streets of Bangkok are the setting, where sad-eyed and shuffling Julian (Gosling) runs a training gym for teens (which is actually a front for drug deals). Also involved is Julian’s more ill-tempered brother Billy (Tom Burke).

Early on, Billy becomes violent in a house of comfort girls, murdering one of those who offered comfort. Quickly enough, the girl’s father murders Billy. When Chang (Vithaya Pansringarm), a police official in tailored civilian clothes, appears on the scene he quickly extracts a penalty of his own on the girl’s sorrowful father.

On to the high-style home of Julian’s rabid mother Crystal (Kristin Scott Thomas), in a state of euphoric demands that Julian bring her the head of the man who murdered Billy.

But when Julian discovers how pitiful and distraught this vengeful father really is, Julian doesn’t have the heart to kill him.  Anyway, death would be a relief. Letting the man suffer is a punishment far worse.

Crystal is outraged. She isn’t buying any of it. She still wants the head of the man who killed her son.

These cycles of violence bore deeper into the lives of Crystal, Julian and Chang with Bangkok’s own sordid surroundings feeding the opportunities to extract more pain.

“Only God Forgives” feels excessively violent, but not in a snuff film kind of way – in a far more disquieting world where revenge without any high ground to justify it becomes even more disgusting because of such elegant (at times ) surroundings.

Remember those creepy hallways in David Lynch’s “Blue Velvet?”  Refn includes Bangkok’s version of those God-banished places, too. The mix is a heady one. So is the ritual behavior of everyone involved, predestined to be devoured by their own emotions.


By Chuck Graham,


If you sort of remember the ’70s, you’ll find plenty of nostalgic moments in “Crystal Fairy.”

This semi-autobiographical story now playing at the Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd., is from Chilean writer/director Sebastian Silva. His three brothers take the roles of friends joined by Jamie (Michael Cera) and an airy young woman who calls herself Crystal Fairy (Gaby Hoffmann) – the sort known these days as a hippie chick.

True to the freeform lifestyle, all five meet at a raucous house party in an unnamed Chilean city, then get swept up in deciding to seek out a San Pedro cactus, known for its potent hallucinogenic powers. The director’s brothers –Juan Andres, Jose Miguel and Agustin – play guys who are fairly stable and extremely patient fellows able to embrace the eccentric actions of these two crazy Americans, Jamie and Crystal Fairy.

Jamie is Cera in hyperactive mode, eager to experience a vigorous new high and at the same time being afraid of everything around him.

Hoffmann creates the quintessential hippie chick filled with the spirit of mystical power and spontaneous expression.  She’s either staring off into space or throwing herself into dance poses that, from time to time, find clothes to be an encumbrance.

The adventure begins as a road movie as the merry band searches in a little town for the San Pedro cactus, which seems to be common enough in people’s front yards. The problem is, none of the property owners want to share their San Pedro with these odd strangers.

Resorting to theft, Cera secretly hacks off a sizeable arm of San Pedro and they haul it many miles away to an isolated beach. At this point, the road movie becomes an isolated beach movie.

Pitching their tents, building a fire and boiling the cactus provide the framework for many shifts in personality,  as Jamie becomes more determined to drink this brew and Crystal Fairy wants to commune with the silent faces of nearby mountain ridges.

Misunderstandings combine with philosophical insights to provide a satisfactory resolution, at least for the moment, to life’s never-ending quest for more life.


By Chuck Graham,


Wanna’ see Frodo gone psycho? Well, who doesn’t? Check out “Maniac” at the Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.

The real temptation, after watching several brutally realistic depictions of Elijah Wood as Frank scalping beautiful young women, is to think Wood has just spiked his promising cinema career.

Many famous actors have extended their screen opportunities by doing extreme horror movies. But Wood must figure, why wait until the last minute?

If Wood’s strategy is to separate himself from all the Frodo-type characters Hollywood can dream up, he has definitely done it.

This “Maniac” is a remake of the lurid 1980 original, written by Joe Spinell and directed by William Lustig, that wasn’t exactly crying out for a remake. Never the less, in this update director Franck Khalfoun  takes the cutting edge of misogyny much deeper.

He also goes for the pornography approach, piling on one grisly money shot after another with little time spent in between developing characters, inner conflicts and all that other squishy stuff.  

There is a backstory about Frank’s troubled childhood, which leads him to become a collector of female mannequins that he carefully restores and enhances with distinct personalities. All these plaster women need is real hair to make them come alive in Frank’s heart.

The most beautiful victim is Anna (Nora Arnezeder), an experimental fashion photographer who seems like the perfect partner for Frank’s eccentric tastes. She is the one who remains above the blood splattered fray as Frank’s compulsion for murder carries him into further madness.

Which can only mean she will become Frank’s complete obsession in the  film’s closing scenes. After all, nobody goes to a movie titled “Maniac” expecting a wholesome, uplifting experience.

By Chuck Graham,


For some reason, cool kids never get their own coming-of-age movie. It’s only the awkward teens that screenwriters deem worthy.

Maybe it’s because the screenwriters were also awkward teens themselves. Maybe not, but “The Way, Way Back” written and directed by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash portray 14-year-old Duncan (Liam James) as tone-deaf to contemporary pop culture and none too happy about it.

Duncan feels like everyone else his age knows this secret language of insider hipness and he doesn’t – which makes him perpetually angry and suspicious. Isolated by his own emotions, Duncan has sunken into a near-catatonic state in the middle of summer vacation when his mom’s new boyfriend, a tough love character named Trent (Steve Carell), takes them to his summer cottage to do some serious family-to-be bonding.

Duncan’s mom Pam (Toni Collette) has the best of intentions, but we know this vacation won’t be going that well, otherwise it would be a boring movie. The catalyst is ultra-casual Owen (Sam Rockwell) a grown-up in waiting who runs a family amusement park close to Trent’s vacation cottage.

Early on, Owen spots Duncan as a worthy adolescent who just needs to get his self-confidence juiced up a little with some amusement park antics of derring-do and possibly a little romance.

“The Way Way Back” is being pitched as a quirky comedy along the lines of “Little Miss Sunshine.” Which it is, sort of.

The humor isn’t as quirky and the characters don’t resonate as deeply, but “The Way, Way Back” is still a tender and sensitively told coming-of-age tale that will feel right to anyone who got straight A’s in high school but could never master the language of those cool kids.

Don't Blink Burlesque presents Fanny's Fresh Meat V

From the Tucson Weekly …


City Week 

by Alison Dorf and Noelle Haro-Gomez

New Burlesque Divas

Fanny's Fresh Meat V

8 and 10 p.m., Friday, July 26

Fluxx Studio and Gallery, 414 E. Ninth St.


Fanny Galore had been performing burlesque since 2008 and is a founding member of the Tucson troupe Don't Blink Burlesque.

After taking a workshop, Galore realized that because she had a teaching background she could combine that with her love of burlesque. So she began teaching at various spots around town as she made a name for herself. She eventually settled at Fanny's Fox Den, 215 N. Hoff Ave., Suite 207, where she offers burlesque, dance and fitness classes.

"Tucson has been really receptive to burlesque, especially at Fanny's Fresh Meat" where all the performers are students, Galore said. "For most of them, it is their first time on stage ... and the audience is really supportive."

The fresh meat consists of students completing Burlesque Performance 101 — a six-week workshop where they learn how to create and perform a solo burlesque act complete with a stage name and costume; and Burlesque Performance 202 — a five-week course for people who have been performing burlesque for at least six months. They perform burlesque together as a final project before graduation.

During Fresh Meat, Galore interacts with the audiences and talks about each performance. At the beginning of the show there is a group performance in which everyone is introduced.

At the end of the show, Galore holds a graduation ceremony that is probably unlike any other grad ceremony you have attended. The students strut across the stage in outfts they have picked out for the occasion. But instead of receiving a diploma, they're given a pair of pasties.

The show is for ages 21 and older. Tickets are $10 and $15.
