Director Robert Greene is scheduled to be present.

Radically combining collaborative documentary, western, and musical elements, Bisbee ’17 follows several members of a close-knit community in the old mining town of Bisbee, Ariz., as they attempt to reckon with their town’s darkest hour: the long-buried and largely forgotten “Bisbee Deportation” of 2,000 striking immigrant miners. The film documents locals as they play characters and stage dramatic scenes from the controversial story, culminating in a large-scale recreation of the traumatic event on the day of its 100th anniversary. Contains mature content, including violence and strong language.
