What is it that ties us to the state where we currently live and adopt it as the one we're "from"? How does living in our states define us? States of America is a series of short documentaries--one from each of our 50 states--that ask these questions by featuring everyday people as diverse as the landscape in the places they call home. This is a story of Arizona.

LaVona was born on the same day Arizona became a state--100 years ago. Naturally, she’s felt her own identity has always been tied to her state, and between parades and parties celebrating their joint centennial, she shares her ideas on what has kept her in her small rural community for a century. 

*States of America is created and produced by Brad Barber
*Arizona is directed by Brad Barber, edited by Wayne Nilsson, shot by Wayne Nilsson and Brad Barber, with music by Micah Dahl Anderson. Title design by Brian Turley and Mark T. Lewis.
