Willard Straight Theatre
Central Campus

2018 > USA > Directed by Robert Greene

An old mining town on the Arizona-Mexico border finally reckons with its darkest day: the deportation of nearly 2000 immigrant miners (primarily Mexican and Eastern European) in 1917. Radically combining collaborative documentary, western and musical elements, the film follows several members of the close-knit community as they attempt to process this long-buried and largely forgotten event that came to be known as the Bisbee Deportation. “One of the pleasurable discoveries of this surprising movie is that artifice can be the most direct route to the truth.” (LA Times) More at bisbee17.com
