      Fort Worth Movies That Matter: Bisbee '17 (2018, PG, 112 min.)

      Bisbee '17  (2018, PG, 112 minutes) Radically combining collaborative documentary, western and musical elements, the film follows several members of the close knit community as they attempt to reckon with their town's darkest hour. In 1917, nearly two-thousand immigrant miners, on strike for better wages and safer working conditions, were violently rounded up by their armed neighbors, herded onto cattle cars, shipped to the middle of the New Mexican desert and left there to die. This long-buried and largely forgotten event came to be known as the Bisbee Deportation. View the trailer here:  http://fortworthtexas.gov/moviesthatmatter/bisbee-17/ Movies That Matter is a FREE, bi-monthly film series that highlights important human and civil rights issues. Each event features a film screening, followed by a moderated discussion with special guests. Screenings are held in February, April, June, August and October and December.
