Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.

Description

  • The State of Arizona

    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.

    Frustrated with federal inaction and rising border tensions, Arizona lawmakers ignite a national maelstrom by instituting SB 1070. The tough law is designed to make life so harsh for unauthorized immi¬grants that they will "self-deport." Supporters call SB 1070 a common sense law enforcement tool; opponents see it as a danger¬ous infringement of civil rights that would inevitably lead to harass¬ment and racial profiling. The State of Arizona follows the battle over the law as it spills out to the streets, into the ballot box, and goes all the way to the Supreme Court.

    By the makers of the award-winning Farmingville, The State of Arizona captures the latest chapter in the American experience in which Arizona's clash over immigration galvanizes Latinos across the country to change the nation's political landscape.
