Film Watch: "Sacco and Vanzetti"

Here's a documentary you may want to check out:  "Sacco and Vanzetti" is an 80-minute-long documentary that tells the story of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, two Italian immigrants who were accused of a murder in 1920, and executed in Boston in 1927 after a controversial trial. It is the first major documentary film about this landmark story, which came to symbolize the bias against immigrants by some in America. At the time of their execution, millions of people in the U.S. and around the world protested on their behalf, and now - nearly eighty years later - the story continues to have great resonance.
