Event Details

Join us for Community Cinema's November film The State of Arizona.

This vérité documentary captures the explosive emotions and complex realities behind Arizona’s headline-grabbing struggle with illegal immigration. Tracking the year after Arizona passes SB1070, its controversial “papers please” law, the film tells the stories of Arizonans on all sides of this divisive issue and depicts a state and its people testing the edges of our democratic values. Watch the film trailer and learn more here.

After the screening we'll talk with Immigration Professionals attorney Jessica Piedra; Layla Razavi, who serves as the ACLU regional advocacy and policy counsel on the Immigration Initiative; and members of the UMKC chapter of the American Constitution Society.

Please note: The program and film starts at 11am, so please plan to arrive at least a few minutes early.

Community Cinema is a free monthly screening series presents fascinating documentaries from the Emmy-Award winning PBS series Independent Lens followed by lively discussions that connect films to local organizations and resources. Films are shown from September to June every second Saturday of the month at 11am.
