THIRD PARTY SCREENING: From Cyrus to Ahmadinejad
From Cyrus to Ahmadinejad is a groundbreaking documentary about one of the most explosive conflicts in the world. For the first time on the record, an Israeli official, vice Prime Minister Moshe Yalon, implicitly, accepts the responsibility for the assassination of Iranian scientists, damaging Iranian nuclear centrifuges with a computer virus and destroying Iran’s military and nuclear facilities in the past few years.
The recent events are not the only incidents uncovered by filmmaker Maziar Bahari in From Cyrus to Ahmadinejad. The film provides an overview of the relationship between the two nations from the time when Persian King Cyrus the Great provided refuge to Jewish people fleeing Babylon in 2500 BC to the secret dealings between the state of Israel and Iran before and after the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
