THE STATE OF ARIZONA chronicles the passing of the controversial immigration law SB1070, also known as the “papers please” law that ignited a national maelstrom in Arizona and around the country. Combining interviews with footage of heated protest rallies and television coverage, the film tells the stories of Arizonans on all sides of this divisive issue depicting a state and its people testing the edges of our democratic values. With dozens of states considering a similar approach, THE STATE OF ARIZONA holds up a mirror, asking Americans who they are, and who they want to be.
