On the 35th anniversary of the Iran hostage crisis this unique film offers a rare Iranian perspective on the political circumstances that led to the infamous event, known as “Conquest of the American Spy Den”.

“We expected we’d be there for a day, maybe one night”, a former US consular official says of his 14 month imprisonment at the American Embassy in Iran. The architect of the hostage situation, Ebrahim Asgharzadeh, reveals the shrewd political calculus behind his actions. “The ideas that we had were very pure; they were victims of their government.”
