Dir. Dan Shadur (60min, Israel, 2013)
In Hebrew and Arabic with English Subtitles
Hard as it may be to imagine today, Tehran, the capital city of Iran, was once considered a paradise for Israelis. In the 1960s and 1970s, an affluent and elite group enjoyed close relations with the Shah’s regime, built around oil, construction contracts, and weapons deals. Director Dan Shadur’s documentary begins as a nostalgic look into his family’s glorious past, but quickly morphs into a thrilling ride that uses a masterful assemblage of archival footage to offer a new take on the events of the Iranian Revolution.
