*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.
