Tuesday, September 27

  • 7 p.m. Undeterred documentary screening, Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership: The Center for International Programs, in collaboration with the Border Studies Program, is hosting a screening of Undeterred followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker. The film is a documentary about community resistance in the rural border town of Arivaca, Arizona. Since the 1990s, border residents have been on the front-line of a humanitarian-crisis and have organized their community against the build-up of enforcement and surveillance technologies, as well as white supremacists and vigilante groups present in the region. Undeterred is an intimate and unique portrait of how residents in a small rural community, caught in the crosshairs of global geo-political forces, have mobilized to demand our rights and to provide aid to injured, oft times dying people funneled across a wilderness desert.
