“Don’t miss the Tucson Premiere of the award-winning, made-in-Arizona documentary, You Racist, Sexist Bigot, featuring a post-film Q&A with directors Pita Juarez and Matty Steinkamp!

Do you ever question the opinions you hold about people who aren’t like you? In a country that prides itself on being a melting pot, it seems that many of us have been raised to believe that, once melted, the end result should resemble only one of the ingredients. Discrimination is rooted not just in seeing ‘the other’ but in being led to believe that ‘other’ equals ‘worse’. This film shares a rainbow of amazing humans in order to tear down the walls that prevent us from seeing that we are far more similar than we are different and that it is the differences which give us our own unique beauty. (Dir. by Pita Juarez and Matty Steinkamp, 2018, USA, 65 mins., Not Rated)”

  1. Very hard hitting documentary interviewing various people of color, sexual orientations, religious beliefs, gender about their personal stories in Arizona, mostly filmed in Phoenix. The film makers explored racism, sexism, bigotry towards LGBTQ + individuals, and religion (i. e. Jews, Sikhs, etc). The message was for more acceptance, tolerance, understanding of others, with respect to human rights. Q & A afterwards was about the making of the film, how the two directors met, whether there will be a sequel, how to start difficult conversation on these topics. Photos of audience members (including me) with the 2 directors will be on their FB page. Attending tonight: LD 7 Rep. Wenona Benally Baldenegro and
    LD 3 State Senator Sally Gonzales, with husband PCC Board member Luis Gonzales, and LD 10 House candidate
    Cat Ripley.
