    Lt. Governor's Monthly Movie Series Screens Undeterred.

    Undeterred is a documentary about community resistance in the rural border town of Arivaca, Arizona. It provides an intimate and unique portrait of how residents in a small rural community, caught in the cross-hairs 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.

    After the film there will be a panel discussion focusing on immigration, detention and our border policies. Audience questions are welcome.

    This event is free and open to the public. Doors at 6:30 and the movie will begin at 7:00. Snacks are provided.
