State of ArizonaFree Community Cinema Documentary: The State of Arizona by Carlos Sandoval and Catherine Tambini

Admission: Free

The battle over the illegal immigration in Arizona that came to a head with Senate Bill 1070 frames this riveting documentary that tracks multiple perspectives -- activists, politicians, Latina immigrants, controversial Sheriff Joe Arpaio, ranchers and others -- as America eyes the results.

The Independent Television Service (ITVS), PBS SoCal (KOCE-TV) and Soka University of America are pleased to announce the fifth year of the Community Cinema series. The largest public interest outreach program in public or commercial television, Community Cinema features a sneak peek of six documentaries set to broadcast on the award-winning PBS series Independent Lens.  Community Cinema, in partnership with Soka University’s Humanities Program and Student Affairs, screens films from October through May.

After the screenings, Community Cinema features panel discussions with community-based organizations, special guest speakers, information, resources, and other programming designed to help our students and community learn more about the issues and get involved.  Faculty members are encouraged to incorporate these films in their class curricula.
