Rick Steves Iran: Yesterday and Today
February 14 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This documentary was filmed by Rick Steves a decade ago when he traveled to Iran at a time when talk of war between the U.S. and Iran was in the air. Similar talk reoccurs from time to time within our country even though the consequences of armed conflict for both countries would be great. “Iran: Yesterday and Today” provides a view into the lives of ordinary Iranians as well as some of the history of that country. We’ll see that Iranians by and large have the same hopes and aspirations as Americans for peace, prosperity, education and so many other endeavors. Currently the relationship between Iran and the U.S. is at another low point with the abrogation by the U.S. of the Iran-U.S. nuclear deal and the imposition of even stronger economic sanctions, the losers from which are the ordinary people of Iran that the film depicts.
