Bisbee 17 DVD



“Critic’s Pick. Clearsighted and gratifyingly complicated. A profoundly haunted and haunting film. Every important thing this movie is about is still alive.”
– A.O.Scott, The New York Times

“Unflinching and timely. Eye-opening.”
– Joshua Rothkopf, “The Best New Movie to See This Month,” Time Out (New York)

BISBEE ’17 has been called “a ghost story by way of a documentary” (Vox). One hundred years ago in the little town of Bisbee, Arizona – home to the Copper Queen Mine – a murderous ethnic cleansing took place: nearly 2,000 striking miners (mostly Mexican and Eastern European immigrants) were rounded up at gunpoint, herded into cattle cars, and abandoned in the desert. Robert Greene, known for his provocative melding of documentary and fictive elements, records the town’s centenary re-enactment of the event – eerily starring descendants of key figures in this little-known, mindboggling history. – Karen Cooper, Director, Film Forum
