|Click on the still to watch the trailer of Sacco and Vanzetti.
A documentary film directed by Peter Miller. Willow Pond Films. Released theatrically in 2007 by First Run Features, 80 minutes.
The untold story of Italian immigrants Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti — anarchists whose trial for murder divided the nation and stirred the conscience of the world. Featuring the voices of Tony Shalhoub and John Turturro reading Sacco and Vanzetti’s powerful prison writings.
“A wonderful film, as timeless as the struggle for human justice, as relevant as today’s headlines.” — Ken Burns
“Vividly illuminates one of the most famous court cases, and miscarriages of justice, in American history, and effectively places it in the context of its times. It is a timely reminder of the fragility of our liberties in times of crisis.” — Eric Foner, DeWitt Clinton Professor of History, Columbia University
“A brilliant reconstruction of the lives of the immigrant martyrs, and an important contribution to the understanding of anarchists persecuted by American liberals and conservatives alike in the Red Scare that has never really ended.” — Paul Buhle, Senior Lecturer, Brown University, Co-editor, Encyclopedia of the American Left
“Finally we have a superb and thorough documentary that gives light to the facts and feelings about this most important example of the miscarriage of American justice. Bravo Peter Miller for doing it right. This documentary needs to be viewed by all students of American culture, and is especially relevant in the terror-driven atmosphere that surrounds all of us today.” — Fred Gardaphe, Stony Brook University
“Miller makes his film soar by keeping our attention focused on the defendants. Sacco and Vanzetti make us proud to be human beings and prouder still to be radicals. They also force us to recommit ourselves to the struggle for human liberation. For if their agony was their triumph, it can and must be ours as well. SACCO AND VANZETTI is a must see.” — Michael D. Yates, MRZine.org
