From today’s The Times an excellent article by Larushka Ivan-Zadeh
Been following this story for many a decade! Shameful.
An interesting link with the iconic ‘Apocalypse Now’ – Taghi Amirani worked with Walter Murch, sound designer on F F Coppola’s masterpiece, and a three time Oscar winner.
Tomris Laffly writes: The most notable achievement of “Coup 53” is daring the viewer to imagine a different Middle East today — what would have happened had Mosaddegh (whom Amirani sees as a Gandhi-like figure for Iran) not been overthrown? What would a flourishing and fair democracy in the region mean for the future of the Middle East? The world would perhaps have been a different place, Amirani imagines, knowing that mankind will never live in that version of the globe.( 4 September 2019)
