Description:
  [Screening @ Tiburon Film Society]

During the 60’s and 70’s thousands of Israelis were living in Tehran, enjoying a special relationship with the Shah and his dictatorial rule. Protected by large arms deals and complex financial ties, the Israeli community enjoyed a wealthy and luxurious lifestyle; failing to note that the corrupt and despised ruling power to which they are connected, was collapsing.

By the time they understand that their ‘Iranian Paradise’ is turning into hell, it is almost too late, and they stand to find themselves in the middle of the Islamist revolution, due to take Iran by storm.

Using rare archive footage, interviews with diplomats, Mossad agents, businessmen and their families, the director Dan Shadur – whose family had been part of the very same community – reveals a new perspective on the revolution that changed the world. What started as a nostalgic look at a lost era, became a thrilling story where huge dreams were shattered in a dark reality of greed, blindness and lust for power.
