Student Lunch with Taghi Amirani and Walter Murch

Tuesday, January 28, 2020

11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Registration is now at capacity.

Coup 53 film makers Taghi Amirani (director) and Walter Murch (co-writer, editor) will meet with students over lunch at the Watson Institute on Tuesday, January 28 at 11:30am. Lunch will be hosted by Brown University alum Randall Poster, a music supervisor for film and television.

Ten years in the making, COUP 53 tells the story of the 1953 Anglo-American coup d'├ętat that overthrew Iran's government of Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh and reinstalled the Shah. Shot in seven countries, featuring participants and first-hand witnesses, and unearthing never seen before archive material, COUP 53 is a politically explosive and cinematically innovative documentary that lifts the lid on secrets buried for over sixty-six years.

There will be a screening of the film followed by a panel discussion on January 28 at 6 p.m. at the Granoff Center for the Creative Arts, 154 Angell Street.
