FLORENCE, ARIZONA

SYNOPSIS

FLORENCE, ARIZONA is a cowboy town with a prison problem.  Founded in 1866, this bastion of the Wild West is home to 8,500 citizens and 17,000 inmates incarcerated in nine prisons. Through an unconventional lens, the documentary film FLORENCE, ARIZONA weaves together the stories of four key residents of Florence, whose lives have all been shadowed in some way by the surrounding prison industrial complex.  The result is an intricately crafted cinematic trip through a unique strand of Americana with humor, intimacy, and pathos that reveals as much about ourselves as it does about the modern state of our nation.
