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.
Carlos Sandoval is the co-director/producer of the award-winning documentaries, A Class Apart and Farmingville, which won the Sundance Special Jury Prize. A lawyer and writer, Sandoval’s work has appeared in such publications as The New York Times. Prior to filmmaking, Sandoval worked on immigration and refugee affairs as a member of the U.S. delegation to the United Nations.
