At the threshold of the 20th century, a melting pot of adventurous immigrants, creative mavericks, and freedom-seeking African Americans shaped consumerism as we now know it. “The City That Sold America” explores how Chicago introduced ground-breaking, behavior-changing ideas like fast-food chains, orange juice, soap operas, African-American beauty products, late-night talk shows, toothpaste, and Kleenex, and uncovers the origins of such beloved icons as Tony the Tiger, the Jolly Green Giant, Charlie Tuna, the Budweiser Clydesdales, and the Pillsbury Dough Boy.

“Bisbee ’17” — by Sundance award-winning director Robert Greene, who teaches documentary at the University of Missouri — is set in Bisbee, Ariz., an eccentric old mining town just miles away from both Tombstone and the Mexican border. Radically combining documentary and genre elements, the film follows several members of the close-knit community as they collaborate with the filmmakers to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Bisbee Deportation, where 1,200 immigrant miners were violently taken from their homes by a deputized force, shipped to the desert on cattle cars, and left to die.
