In collaboration with POV (Point-of-View), PBS’s award-winning independent non-fiction film series, the Bay County Public Library will screen Bisbee ’17 by filmmaker Robert Greene (2018) on Tuesday, November 19th at 5:30 p.m. as part of the Beyond the Lens: Book and Film Series. The paired book is From the Folks who Brought You the Weekend by Priscilla Murolo and A.B. Chitty.

 

Radically combining documentary and scripted elements, Bisbee ‘17 follows several members of the close-knit community in Bisbee, Arizona, a former mining town, as they commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Bisbee Deportation, when 1,200 immigrant miners were violently taken from their homes by deputized force.
