films premiere BISBEE '17

"A profoundly haunted and haunting film ... Every important thing this movie is about is still alive." - Critic's Pick, The New York Times

 

BISBEE '17 opens at NYC's Film Forum today, September 5th! See screening and Q&A details below.

BISBEE ’17 is a nonfiction feature film by Sundance award-winning director Robert Greene set in Bisbee, Arizona, an eccentric old mining town just miles away from both Tombstone and the Mexican border. 

Radically combining documentary and genre elements, the film follows several members of the close knit community as they collaborate with the filmmakers to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Bisbee Deportation, where 1200 immigrant miners were violently taken from their homes by a deputized force, shipped to the desert on cattle cars and left to die.

To learn more about the film, listen to director Robert Greene's NPR interview, visit the website, and watch the trailer. We hope you'll come out to see this remarkable and haunting film!
