Targeting Iran (71 min, Andy Norris, 2013) Inspired by a book of the same name by David Barsamian, the documentary Targeting Iran seeks to debunk myths about Iranian society, politics, and nuclear weapons aspirations. Interviews with leading geopolitical thinkers about Iran and US-Iranian relations are supplemented with background history on Iran, including the western intervention in Iran in 1953 that seeded so many subsequent wars in the Middle East. The film is given added value through the film depictions of current Iranian life and society provided by Rick Steves who toured Iran in 2008 at the encouragement of Seattle’s INOC peace-making group. The film is especially important at this very moment because the US Senate will vote soon after Labor Day (September 7th, 2015) to accept or reject a deal, recently negotiated between six nations and the government of Iran, that would limit Iran’s nuclear capabilities in return for the lifting of western economic sanctions. As of mid-August, 58 US Senators have indicated they would vote against the accord, while Senators Cantwell and Murray remain silent about which way they will vote. www.wedgwoodmeaningfulmovies.org Share: More Email Share on Tumblr
