A Sundance Film Festival favorite, CROSSING ARIZONA offers an up-close multi-dimensional look at the hotly debated issues of immigration and border security through the eyes of people directly affected by it at America's flashpoint - in Arizona's Sonora Desert on the border with Mexico. This timely documentary reveals the complicated dilemmas presented by the crisis, and the surprising political stances people take when immigration policy fails everyone. The film has screened around the world for several years, garnering 8 international awards and honors.

The State of Arizona captures the explosive emotions and complex realities behind Arizona's headline-grabbing struggle with illegal immigration. From ground zero of the nation's immigration debate, the film follows Arizona's controversial "show me your papers" law through the stories of Arizonans on all sides of this divisive issue - from those who wrote it, to those who supported it, to those who dreaded its wrath
