Here is a documentary that portrays the grassroots resistance to Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Maricopa County, Arizona. He prides himself on being the “toughest sheriff in America” — he runs the toughest immigration raids in migrant and Latino neighborhoods. Under Arpaio’s ruthless rule, human rights violations have risen through the roof and hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars have been wasted. This revealing film features reporters, attorneys, elected officials, indigenous people, and grassroots activists and organizers from barrios and migrant communities who speak truth to power. It brings to light the people in the Phoenix area who are rarely seen in the national spotlight, but who are the ones on the daily front lines as Sheriff Arpaio continues to conduct raids on migrant and Latino neighborhoods, ignore bad jail conditions, and mispend millions. In the face of all of this, the Latino community targeted by Arpaio has not stood still but has organized and continues to fight. This is their story, their struggle against one of the most well-known law enforcement figures in recent U.S. history.

Enjoy a discussion with the Director after the film.
