Under Arpaio, a documentary by Pan Left Productions, recently picked up the Best of Arizona prize at the Arizona International Film Festival. The film has been shown in many communities, educating immigrants, activists and neighbors about the kind of hatred that law enforcement is promoting, not just in Maricopa County but in cities and towns everywhere. The film will be shown in New York City on May 22 in partnership with DRUM-Desis Rising Up & Moving, a grassroots organization based in the South Asian community.

More about Under Arpaio, from Pan Left:
Under Arpaio shows the grassroots resistance to Maricopa County, Arizona’s Sheriff Joe Arpaio who prides himself on being the “toughest sheriff in America.” Arpaio prides himself on immigration raids on migrant and Latino neighborhoods, human rights violations in his jails and wasting hundreds of of millions of taxpayer dollars. Under Arpaio features the grassroots activists from low-income migrant communities, the attorneys, reporters, elected officials, and indigenous people who speak truth to power.
