Through the lens of some of the world’s greatest sociopolitical thinkers, this 71-minute film examines the many political, historical, economic, military and cultural aspects of the U.S./Iranian relationship that are not often discussed in the mainstream media.

Based on the book of the same name by author and journalist David Barsamian, Targeting Iran seeks to elucidate the myths and popular misconceptions surrounding Iran’s nuclear aspirations. Through interviews with eminent figures such as MIT’s Jim Walsh, National Iranian American Council President and author of A Single Roll of the Dice Trita Parsi, Noam Chomsky, veteran New York Times correspondent Stephen Kinzer, and David Barsamian himself, the complexities of Iran’s history, socio-political strata and strategic quandary are laid out in all-too-rare a fashion for Western audiences.  Given the recent nuclear deal and lifting of sanctions, together with continuing tensions surrounding Americans imprisoned in Iran, this film is very timely.
