The story of two Italian immigrant radicals who were executed in 1927 offers insights into present-day issues of civil liberties and the rights of immigrants.

Oddly, the film is not really about the case, at least not much of the time, like you might expect. They could easily have used the 90 minutes to go through the evidence for and against the accused. Instead, they show the influence the men had on history, art, and one man even shows where one of the men lived. Maybe you should not watch this documentary unless you have already read something of the case and know the background.

Howard Zinn shows up here, both as an interview subject and as a professor giving a speech. Zinn is a perfect person to interview, as few other people have championed the underdog quite like he has. (Sadly, he is no longer with us.) He may be a bit too sympathetic with the anarchists, but then again, maybe they were innocent.
