A fiery inquest into the death of "Wobblie" (International Workers of the World) organizer Frank Little, which is still debated in Butte, Montana over a century later, Wilkerson’s gripping, dynamically designed historical mystery combines intertitles, archival footage, and a sorrowful soundtrack by the likes of Will Oldham and Jim O’Rourke, and draws parallels between the lynching of Little and the slow strangulation of Butte by the Anaconda Mining Company. Screening with Cul de Sac: A Suburban War Story, which fills in the shocking backstory behind the 35-year-old ex-soldier Shawn Nelson’s final joyride in a stolen National Guard tank.
