IRAN: A CINEMATOGRAPHIC REVOLUTION 
A Film by Nader Takmil Homayoun
Today Iranian cinema is one of the most highly regarded national cinemas in
the world, regularly winning festival awards and critical acclaim for films
which combine remarkable artistry and social relevance. IRAN: A
CINEMATOGRAPHIC REVOLUTION traces the development of this film industry,
which has always been closely intertwined with the country's tumultuous
political history, from the decades-long reign of Reza Shah Pahlevi and his
son, the rise of Khomeini and the birth of the Islamic Republic, the seizure
by militants of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, and the devastating war with
Iraq.
