Free Community Cinema Screening of "The State of Arizona," Nov. 5

Posted on 29 Oct 2013

In partnership with KUAR FM 89.1 and William F. Laman Public Library, we're proud to host a free screening of "The State of Arizona" as part of Community Cinema on Tuesday, Nov. 5, at 6:30 p.m. in library room 126. 

“The State of Arizona” captures the explosive emotions and complex realities underlying Arizona’s headline-grabbing struggle with immigration in the year after the state’s passage of S.B. 1070, its controversial “papers please” law. The stated intent of the law is to make life so miserable for illegal immigrants that they will choose to self-deport, earning it a reputation as a common sense law-enforcement tool among supporters and as a legalized form of racial profiling among detractors. Telling the stories of Arizonans on all sides of this divisive issue, this vérité documentary depicts a state and its people testing the edges of the nation’s democratic values.

A community discussion led by panelists, including Senator Joyce Elliott and Sara Mullally, co-founder of El Zócalo Immigrant Resource Center, will follow the screening. 

Community Cinema is a free monthly screening series engaging communities through films produced by the Independent Television Service (ITVS) and features monthly screenings followed by panel discussions with leading organizations, local communities and special guest speakers. The program is designed to help people learn about and get involved in the social issues raised in the documentaries. Additional information is available by calling AETN at 800-662-2386 or visiting aetn.org/communitycinema.
