The old mining town of Bisbee, Arizona is haunted by the ghosts of its past, figuratively and literally. Bisbee was the site of a brutal deportation of 1,200 striking miners, most of them immigrants, who were left to die in the desert. Filmed during the centennial of this shocking but mostly forgotten event, BISBEE ’17 follows residents and descendants as they reenact the deportation. For some, the reenactment dredges up painful personal history; for others, it shifts their worldview.
