A nonfiction feature film set in Bisbee, Arizona, an eccentric old mining town just miles away from both Tombstone and the Mexican border. Radically com-bining documentary, Western, and musical elements, the film follows several members of the close-knit community as they attempt to reckon with – and reenact – their town’s darkest hour. In 1917, nearly two-thousand immigrant miners, on strike for better wages and safer conditions, were violently rounded up by their armed neighbors, herded onto cattle cars, shipped to the middle of the New Mexican desert, and left there to die. This long-buried, and largely forgotten, event came to be known as the Bisbee Deportation. 2018. 2h4m.
