Don’t miss the Australian Premiere of Our Man in Tehran

Directors: DREW TAYLOR & LARRY WEINSTEIN, CANADA, 2013, 85 MIN

Our Man in Tehran revisits the true story behind Ben Affleck’s Hollywood film Argo, setting the story straight about the role played by Canadian ambassador Ken Taylor in hiding six American diplomats during the Iranian Hostage Crisis of 1979. With access to key players and footage, this enthralling documentary sheds new light on secret dealings between the US and Canadian governments and the covert planning of the military rescue. The filmmakers deftly summon a moment in our history where the entire world seemingly held its breath, proving that truth can be more entertaining than fiction.
