Coup 53

While making a documentary about the 1953 coup in Iran, director Taghi Amirani and editor Walter Murch uncover archival material hidden for decades. The discovery allows them to tell the story of the overthrow of the Iranian government and leads to explosive revelations about secrets buried for 66 years. Sponsored by Jane & Tom McKim "An exhilarating... historical documentary that unfolds with the pace and complexity of a thriller." -- John Powers – Fresh Air, NPR "As compelling as a John Le Carré novel or a Costa-Gavras classic" -- Allen Hunter - Screen Daily
