A Sundance festival favorite, Crossing Arizona provides the framework critical for understanding the origins of SB 1070. Heightened security at the U.S./Mexico border has forced border crossers into Arizona’s brutal desert. The journey, which can take up to four days, has caused a rise in the number of migrant deaths. Seen through the eyes of frustrated ranchers, border patrol agents, local politicians, farmers dependent on an illegal work force, humanitarian activists, desperate migrants, and the Minutemen who quickly became darlings of the national media, this documentary unveils the dilemmas presented by the border crisis and the political stances people take when immigration and border policy fails everyone.

Arizona: State of Fear
Beneath the hype of SB 1070, lay tracts of anti-immigrant state laws that function to remove “illegal” residents. This film is a 30-minute crash course on why Arizona is an inhospitable place for hispanic families to live and work with or without SB 1070.
