Independent Lens

The State Of Arizona

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
This verite documentary captures the explosive 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, the film tells the stories of Arizonans on all sides of this divisive issue - activists, politicians, Latino immigrants, controversial Sheriff Joe Arpaio, ranchers and others - and depicts a state and its people testing the edges of our democratic values.
