National Center for Jewish Film’s Jewishfilm.2014 – “Before the Revolution”

May 1, 2014 $12.00 0

NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE – For thousands of Israelis in the 1960s and 1970s, Tehran, Iran, was a utopia. Enjoying close relations with the Shah’s regime, their paradise was built on construction contracts, weapons sales, and oil. Then the Iranian Revolution arrived. Dan Shadur, a child during his family’s “glory days” in Iran, reveals a unique perspective on the 1979 revolution. A thrilling and timely documentary featuring marvelous home movies and interviews with diplomats, Mossad agents, and families who escaped in the nick of time.
