Bisbee ’17 is a brand new documentary which compiles the events that took place during the 1917 deportation in Arizona. Moreover, the documentary tells the story which surrounds Arizona’s famous city, Bisbee. The documentary comes from the mind of Robert Greene, one of the famous American documentary filmmakers.
By the looks of it, Robert Greene was also the director of the acclaimed documentary film; namely, Kate Plays Christine.
The premise of Bisbee ’17
Bisbee ’17 is the story which runs parallel to the first World War. There is a highly likely chance that the documentary will showcase the impact of World War I on the labour class people of Bisbee. Arizona’s Bisbee was blessed with copper mines and had a massive proportion of people who work in the mines to make ends meet.
The most destructive element of the story is that the workers did work in hazardous conditions, and they were underpaid. On the other hand, the other higher class community regard the working-class neighborhood a severe threat. Indeed the working class became a threat as they made plans to go on a protest due to the adverse working conditions.
Sadly the residents of the place took the working-class people in their clutches and vehemently removed them from the town.
Robert Greene is the mastermind behind the documentary
Before curating the movie, Robert Greene told the residents that they need to share the stories and later help in reenacting the events. It has been more than 100 years that the events of Bisbee took place.
Robert Greene’s Bisbee ’17 is his longtime interest. The documentary continually deconstructs the entirety and fundamentals of the performance. The audience is going to be able to find the cinematic influence that Greene brings to life in Bisbee ’17. One of the essential parts of the movie is that the townspeople whom Robert Greene approached are familiar with the deported people.
