      Tucson Salvage Overtakes Asheville

      Award-winning author Brian Jabas Smith and director Maggie Rawling Smith present a reading, screening, and performance of Tucson Salvage: Tales and Recollections from La Frontera.

      The book Tucson Salvage introduces readers to people and places on the margins of US society with great empathy, lyric, and understated prose. While based in the Southwest, these are universal stories of everyday people struggling below the poverty line in Trump’s America.

      The documentary TUCSON SALVAGE is a meditation on several humans living on the margins and below the poverty line in Tucson, Arizona. All these individuals - man, woman and trans - have suffered at the hands of traditional society and have had to escape the mental or physical imprisonment of their bodies, their attitudes, and their spirits. Many are ex-cons or recovered junkies, but none are passive victims. First-time director Maggie Smith has created an intimate, unflinching look at stories rarely seen on the big screen. Gritty, raw, and emotionally challenging, TUCSON SALVAGE brings you close to people not usually seen or valued in society, and in doing so, holds a mirror to us all.
