First Run pacts on pic pair

Indie distrib picks up 'Sacco,' 'Motherland'

Indie distrib First Run Features has snapped up rights to a duo of docus, Peter Miller’s “Sacco and Vanzetti” and Sedika Mojadidi’s “Motherland Afghanistan.”

“Sacco” follows the infamous case of two Italian immigrant anarchists who were accused of murder in 1920 and executed in Boston in 1927, after a notoriously prejudiced trial.

Docu features narration by John Turturro and Tony Shalhoub, as well as commentary by Howard Zinn, Arlo Guthrie and Studs Terkel.

“Motherland” centers on medical conditions in Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban.

First Run’s upcoming slate also includes Michael Apted’s docu “49 Up.”
