For their documentary The Creek Runs Red, co-directors Bradley Beesley, James Payne and Julianna Brannum travel to Picher, Oklahoma, one of the most environmentally unsound of all American communities, where the land and water are intolerably bilious and the town's primary source of economic sustenance - a zinc and lead mining company - skipped town ages ago. Amid this depressing backdrop, the filmmakers unveil a single bizarre truth: residents feel uniformly resistant to the idea of leaving. Brannum, Beesley and Payne use screen time to both chart the growing environmental disaster that belies the town, and raise penetrating questions about the locals' seemingly inexplicable reluctance to move elsewhere.
