The documentary film The State of Arizona (2014) captures the explosive emotions and complex realities behind Arizona’s headline-grabbing struggle with illegal immigration. Tracking Arizona’s controversial “show me your papers” law all the way to the Supreme Court, the film tells the stories of Arizonans on all sides of this divisive issue.
Catherine Tambini, a resident of the Master Apartments since 2003 with her husband Peter Miller, is a documentary filmmaker who has focused both on immigration issues and the arts.
In addition to “The State of Arizona” she co-produced/co-directed the award-winning Farmingville (2004, Special Jury Prize, Sundance Film Festival) with collaborator Carlos Sandoval.
She also co-produced Suzanne Farrell: Elusive Muse, an Academy
Award-nominated documentary which premiered at the New York Film Festival and aired on PBS. She is currently working on a film on Isaiah Sheffer, who was the Artistic Director of Symphony Space, among his many other accomplishments, and Dance With Me, a film about children with severe physical challenges who are learning to dance with the help of teenage volunteers.
