COUP 53- A new documentary about the US and British coup in Iran

While making this new documentary about the US/British coup in Iran in 1953, Iranian director Taghi Amirani and editor Walter Murch discovered never seen before archive material that brings to light explosive revelations about dark secrets buried for 67 years….

The cold-blooded maneuvering by the US and Britain to install the tyrannical and pro-imperialist Shah of Iran in 1953 foreshadows this urgent moment.

Right now, in the midst of the heroic uprising of the Iranian people for Woman, Life, Freedom, the son of that old Shah is making a big move to replace the Islamic Republic of Iran and to force a different tyrannical, pro-imperialist government on the Iranian people.

Come to watch this crucial film, and to discuss what happened then and what we can and must do now to support the people of Iran.

Both as a detective story and as a deep dive into a world event whose consequences linger, it is bracing, absorbing filmmaking.
Ben Kenigsberg - New York Times

It is without question one of the greatest of all documentaries. Apart from its importance as a revelatory history lesson, it’s a masterpiece of humanity, thoroughness, and consummate film craft.
