*Two films by director Peter Miller*

*Saturday, February 23 – 1:00 p.m.*

*Somerville Library - 79 Highland Avenue, Somerville*

*Sacco and Vanzetti * presents interviews with researchers and 
historians of the lives of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, and 
their trial. It also presents forensic evidence that refutes that used 
by the prosecution during the trial. Prison letters written by the 
defendants are read by voice actors with Tony Shalhoub as Sacco and John 
Turturro as Vanzetti. Interviewees include Howard Zinn, Studs Terkel and 
Arlo Guthrie.

*The Internationale *draws on people’s stories of an emotionally charged 
radical song (the long-time anthem of socialism and communism) to 
celebrate the relationship between music and social change, and to 
evaluate the uncertain fate of once thriving movements of the left.
