UNDETERRED: Undeterred is a
documentary about community resistance in the rural border town of Arivaca, Arizona. Since NAFTA, 9/11 and the Obama and Trump administrations
border residents have been on the front-lines of the humanitarian crisis caused
by increased border enforcement build up. Undeterred is 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. The film was made by Eva Lewis, a resident of Arivaca and long time
member of People Helping People in the Border Zone
(PHP). Undeterred was
created in close collaboration with the Arivaca community and members of PHP.
Eva Lewis and other town members
will be here to discuss the film.
