A video of the theatrical production of the 60th Anniversary of the execution of Ethel & Julius Rosenberg -- featuring Angela Davis, Eve Ensler, Cotter Smith, radical hip hop artists Rebel Diaz, poet Martín Espada, members  of the Rosenberg/Meeropol family, and more! (This production was staged in June 2013).

This 90-minute production uses dramatic readings, acted vignettes, poetry, music, and historical photos, to dramatize the last four days of the Rosenbergs’ lives through their prison letters and their sons' firsthand accounts.

The film also tells the stories of present-day  activist families the Rosenberg Fund for Children assists, and  celebrates current movements for peace, environmental preservation, immigrants' rights, civil liberties and other  progressive struggles --from Idle No More and Stop, Stop and Frisk,  to the fight to free political prisoners.
