The documentary “Power’s War,” by filmmaker Cameron Trejo, brings to light a somewhat unknown incident—but what is actually the deadliest shootout in Arizona history.
More than simply a historical depiction of events leading up to the shootout, “Power’s War” is a study about the effects of war on even the most average of citizens and the catastrophic results of speaking out against said wars,” says Trejo.
The result is a film that caught many people’s attention. “People have come out of the woodwork to talk about this,” Cameron says.
“Power’s War” had 25 sold-out screenings, 14 of those at the Harkins theaters in the Valley, one in Tucson and, in Payson, it sold out three theaters.
Critics found it interesting as well, and among other awards, “Power’s War” won three “Best Documentary” awards, including at the Logan, Utah, Film Festival, Planet Hall Festival and the Anthem Film Festival, where it captured the Grand Jury prize for Best Documentary and Best Score.
