It’s 2017 in Bisbee, Arizona, an old copper-mining town just miles from the Mexican border. The town’s close-knit community prepares to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Bisbee Deportation, during which 1,200 striking miners were violently banished to the middle of the desert and left to die.
With his new film, Procession, premiering at Telluride this week, we present Robert Greene’s radical Sundance gem. A potent genre concoction of documentary, western, and musical, Bisbee ’17 uses historical re-enactments to excavate collective memory and confront how the past haunts the present.
