Bisbee '17
First screened in December 2018
Director: Robert Greene. Documentary about a town's citizens restaging a violent, xenophobic event from their own local history. With Fernando Serrano, Dick Graeme, Doug Graeme, Annie Graeme-Larkin, Richard Graeme III, Becky Reyes, Sue Ray, Mel Ray, Steve Ray, James West, Chris Dietz, Mary Ellen Dunlap.

Twitter Capsule: The Act of Killing meets Inland Empire as Americans shakily confront past felonies. Formally and thematically audacious.

VOR:   Bracing, innovative, and thematically apt with its boundary-blurring form. Even more challenging (and timely) as local and national self-scrutiny.
