Join us for a screening of "Undeterred," a documentary about community resistance to border enforcement in the rural border town of Arivaca, Arizona. Undeterred tells the story of the build up of enforcement along the US/ Mexico border, how it has affected and changed life in one small town and how local residents have organized to push back and resist those changes.
The documentary was made by Eva Lewis, a resident of Arivaca, in collaboration with the community of Arivaca and members of People Helping People in the Border Zone. The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions and join in conversation with director Eva Lewis following the screening.
With thanks to the Earlham College Border Studies Program, Comparative American Studies, and Hispanic Studies for co-sponsoring this event. Questions may be directed to email@example.com
