For almost six decades, in the remote, historic mining town of Creede, Colorado, population 309, generations of conservative mining families and lifelong residents have been trying to share the few roads, one gas station and a single food market with progressive theater people. The contrast is palpable. Especially these days. Creede may be 9,000 feet above sea level and a five-hour drive from any major city, but it has not been spared the current divides in our nation.
Untitled Creede Documentary (UCD) will be an intimate, cinematic immersion into this living, breathing microcosm of our country in these times, brought into vivid view through the hyper-focused lens of a tiny town where residents with fundamentally different opinions and points of view bump up against each other daily.
