A Sundance Film Festival favorite, Crossing Arizona offers an up-close multi-dimensional look at the hotly debated issue of illegal immigration and border security at America's flashpoint – in Arizona’s Sonora Desert on the border with Mexico. This timely documentary reveals the complicated dilemmas presented by the crisis, and the surprising political stances people take when immigration policy fails everyone.
A best-selling title for Cinema Guild, Crossing Arizona has been integrated into the curriculum of colleges and universities across the US, including Stanford University, Wake Forest University, University of Arizona, and The New School.
