Community Cinema: The State of Arizona
Screening is FREE at Houston Public Library's Concourse Level and open to the public. Seating is first come, first served.
HoustonPBS Community Cinema screenings feature lively panel discussions with leading community-based organizations, special guest speakers, information and resources, and other programming designed to help people learn about and get involved in some of today's key social issues.
The State of Arizona depicts the divisive battle over illegal immigration in Arizona that came to a head with Senate Bill 1070. This tense documentary tracks multiple perspectives - activists, politicians, Latino immigrants, controversial Sheriff Joe Arpaio, ranchers, and others - as America eyes the results.
Community Cinema is presented locally by HoustonPBS/Channel 8 in collaboration with Independent Lens and ITVS.
