Synopsis

It’s 2017 in Bisbee, Arizona, an old copper-mining town just miles from the Mexican border. The town’s close-knit community prepares to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Bisbee Deportation, during which 1,200 striking miners were violently banished to the middle of the desert and left to die.

MUBI's take

A radical Sundance gem, this powerful and formally daring documentary is a potent genre concoction from director Robert Greene. Blending non-fiction, Western, and musical, Bisbee ’17 uses historical re-enactments to excavate collective memory and confront how the past haunts the present.
