Iran Hostage Crisis: 444 Days to Freedom DVD
On Novenber 4, 1979 a group of radical Islamic students swarmed into the U.S. Embassy in Teheran, took its staff hostage, and demanded that the American government return the Shah of Iran. 444 grueling days later the students and their hostages finally went home. Produced by acclaimed filmmaker, Les Harris, THE IRAN HOSTAGE CRISIS: 444 Days to Freedom interweaves rare doumentary footage with personal reminiscences and contemporary video, moving presidents and pundits into the wings, leaving center stage for the hostages and those who knew them well. To watch this film is to vividly relive the euphoria of release.
