In 2013, I moved to Arivaca, Arizona, the border community in the heart of the Sonoran Desert, which is the subject of my film Undeterred. The desert is awe-inspiring, beautiful and deadly. Men and women die every day attempting to cross it. When visiting the area, you are confronted at every turn with the ubiquitous military-style presence of the Border Patrol. Living here is a daily struggle in reconciling the competing realities of small town life and the death and suffering of the border.
