The State of Arizona – Tue, Nov. 19, 2013
The State of Arizona captures the volatile emotions and complex realities behind Arizona’s headline-grabbing struggle with illegal immigration. Tracking the year after Arizona passed SB1070, its controversial “papers please” law, this unflinching film presents Arizonans on all sides of this divisive issue. Full of drama and unexpected twists, The State of Arizona depicts a state and its people testing the edges of our democratic values and struggling for the very heart and soul of America.
