Human stories behind Arizona’s controversial “Show Me Your Papers” Law.
A sneak preview of the documentary film from Rocky Mountain PBS and Independent Lens
presented by Durango Community Cinema

“The State of Arizona” captures the explosive emotions and complex realities behind Arizona’s headline-grabbing struggle with illegal immigration. Following Arizona’s controversial Senate Bill 1070, dubbed the “show me your papers” law, the film tells the stories of Arizonians on all sides of this divisive issue from ground zero of the nation’s immigration debate.
The one hour screening will be followed by a community discussion led by Lindsay Marshall, an attorney with Colorado Legal Services. Before moving to Durango, Lindsay Marshall was the director of the Florence Immigrant & Refugee Rights Project, a legal services organization for people in deportation proceedings in Arizona (www.firrp.org) including those impacted by SB 1070.
