Radically combining documentary and scripted elements, Bisbee '17 follows several members of the close-knit community in Bisbee, Arizona, a former mining town, as they commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Bisbee Deportation, when 1,200 immigrant miners were violently taken from their homes by a deputized force, shipped to the desert on cattle cars and left to die. Following the film, there will be a discussion panel with the filmmakers, artist Laurie McKenna, and historian Mike Anderson.This program is presented in collaboration with the Arizona Historical Society, Arizona Public Media, and POV.
