The "crime of the century" of the 1920’s jolts to life in modern day New York City in Joseph Silovsky's micro-history multimedia tale, Send for the Million Men. With a compelling command of animatronics, robotics, puppetry, and handmade projectors, Silovsky examines the controversial executions of notorious anarchists Sacco and Vanzetti. Their bleak fates intertwine with Silovsky's own micro-tragic biography in a humorous and captivating history-rethink.
